Seems to be an expected issue ...
Google .. simplescalar ..

SimpleScalar 3.0 - BBSWiki 1 Jun 2008

Please do all the commands by the text ....
And for the error you have ... this command : Quote :
find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 sed -i -e 's,yy_current_buffer,YY_CURRENT_BUFFER,g'
If further problems in Fedora, you may have to use :
make CC=gcc34 (( make CC=gcc34 CXX=g++34 ))
... 'configure' has no options for C flags.
# yum install compat-gcc-34
provides /usr/bin/gcc34 .
# yum install compat-gcc-34-c++
provides /usr/bin/g++34 .
