GCC-CORE error.

Before I say anything, I want to say I had an error with binutils 2.15... (the version expected in LFS book), the standard undefined references in arlex.l error; however, installing bison & flex did not fix the problem, so I just decided to compile binutils 2.16 and that worked fine.

Anyway, I encounter a problem @: make BOOT_LDFLAGS="-static" bootstrap

It goes through its compiling stages (3 stages, first build, build with gcc ,build again w/ gcc.), during its second stage it encounters this error (error is @ bottom, i started from where it entered /gcc:
make[2]: Entering directory `/LFS/gcc-build/gcc'
stage1/xgcc -Bstage1/ -B/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ -c -g -O2 -DIN_GCC -W -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wstrict-prototype

make[1]: *** [stage2_build] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/LFS/gcc-build/gcc'
make: *** [bootstrap] Error 2
Not quite sure what -lc even is..
The reason I stated my binutils problem is I am thinking binutils is the cause of this error. the ld executable was created during the binutils build.

Any ideas? If I am correct about the error being caused by binutils, how the heck do I get my binutils 2.15 build to work, because no matter what, it did not want to.

Thanks to anyone who can answer this question.
