error compiling GNU-ARM binutils


hi, i am trying to compile a toolchain for an ARM target(never done this successfully).
i just got an error whilst running "make all install" for binutils:
Code:

The first thing to do is look at: /home/ray/Desktop/binutils-2.17/binutils/binemul.c and find out what is ultimately causing those errors.

Binutils should be the easy part, but you will need
a build directory outside binutils-2.17 .

e.g. /home/ray/tmp/binutils-2.17
and /home/ray/tmp/build-binutils

One possible procedure is here
http://www.gnuarm.org/

And thus "configure" could be
cd tmp/build-binutils
sh ../binutils-2.17/configure --target=arm-elf \
--prefix="place-to-install-crosstools" --enable-interwork \
--enable-multilib --with-float=soft
