help with compiling error

I am trying to compile binutils staticly so i do

../binutils-2.13.3/configure --prefix=$LFS/static --sisable-nls


make LDFLAGS="-all-static"

but i get the error

[root@localhost binutils-build]# make LDFLAGS="-all-static"
Configuring in intl
loading cache .././config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -s -E
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for gcc... gcc -s
checking whether the C compiler (gcc -s -g -O2 -all-static) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.
make: *** [configure-intl] Error 1

is there any other way?
