I'm trying to upgrade my glibc. If I were a newbie, I would have given up long, long ago.
I've had to install and/or upgrade many other packages, and they needed many other packes as well. I do all this from source, no binaries here.
So... now I'm back once again in my glibc-build dir. The command (as always) was:
[jedihawk@badass glibc-build]$ ../glibc-2.3.3/configure --enable-add-ons
After it checks the kitchen sink, I get a strange error. Not even Google can help with this one. Here are the last few lines of the configure and then the error:
checking for sys/types.h... yes
checking for sys/stat.h... yes
checking for stdlib.h... yes
checking for string.h... yes
checking for memory.h... yes
checking for strings.h... yes
checking for inttypes.h... yes
checking for stdint.h... yes
checking for unistd.h... yes
checking for long double... yes
checking size of long double... 12
running configure fragment for sysdeps/i386/elf
running configure fragment for nptl/sysdeps/pthread
configure: error: CFI directive support in assembler is required
Does anyone know what this means? Or what options I need to pass GNU as (I've already upgraded my binutils)? Or any other package that I may need?
Here's what I've got now:

I've been spending all week on this and I'm really getting frustrated, so please forgive me if I sound annoyed... I am.
Thanks for your help and time.
