installing binutils 2.15, make claims the cpp fails the sanity check


Ok
So I have a slackware distro. Older like rev 6. (Am unsure how to check the rev of the distro)

I want to upgrade binutils in prep for compiling the 2.6 kernel.

./config works fine.

make dies. the last step says /lib/cpp fails the sanity check. Says to check the config.log, but nothing useful is there.

Gcc is curently 3.1.1

Any help is appreciated.

contents of config.log

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.57. Invocation command line was

$ ./configure --cache-file=./config.cache --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --target=i686-pc-linux-gnu --with-gnu-as --with-gnu-ld --program-transform-name=s,y,y, --srcdir=.
