Problems with Glibc Compile


My compile always exits with Error 2s when Im compiling glibc (I've tried both 2.3.1 and 2.3 without any success)

The failure is as shown below:

gcc ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/sigsuspend.c -c -O -Wall -Winline -Wstrict-protot

My compiler is:
I have no name!:~/glibc-build# gcc -v
Reading specs from /static/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.3/specs
Configured with: ../gcc-3.3/configure --prefix=/static --disable-nls --disable-s
hared --with-as=/mnt/data/filesystems/mnt/lfs//static/bin/as --with-ld=/mnt/data
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.3
I have no name!:~/glibc-build#

I think it might because Im running gcc 3.3

I wanted to compile glbc2.3.2 too :

1- Patched sscanf (really tough to find this one as at nobody reported this problem, only LFScratch and gentoo talk about it). Compile time was about 17 mn on my XP2400+/512Mb DDR no overclock.

2- My pb is at the check and install stage. HELP !
