You didn't install the full gcc dev suite; you didn't install
aclocal, autoconf, automake, makeinfo, etc. You're also probably
using sun's make instead of gmake, and I suspect your linker is
busted, ld_lib_path not set, etc.

You're better served by being able to build these things your self
unless you can find some one who is willing to build these things
for you. The problem is there are a lot of platforms, not everyone
needs every stinking tool for every cruddy little platform.
