The one who actually was able to compile FINALLY came forward and gave me
the fix.

#1 (which *I* found and he didn't mention) was that the target=xxx-elf
  that was the same target for gcc which was down the line.
#2 "configure" was looking for texinfo 4.4 through 4.9 and I have 4.13.  
   Texinfo 4.4 was from 2003.  I DID have texinfo, but my texinfo was
   Again, the problem was in "configure" and "make" comes along and barfs
all over me.

I finished compiling binutils and I'm still waiting for gcc-4.4.3 to
finish.  I had to fix a few problems there.
Ubuntu was a little more strict with some code, so I had to make some
fixes to programs
    cxxfilt.c  had "printf(var);" and no format statement for the string
    gas/read.c and stubs.c had  asprintf(); and ignored the return value,
and warnings were treated as errors.
Cygwin complained about an unrecognized command line option

Oops.  gcc/builtins.c is missing a pile of variables __imp__mpfr_...  Oh

Anyway, original bad nasty directions solved.  Now onto new ones.  ...
I should mention that problem #1 was found by suggestions from DPRG. 
Thanks guys!

If texinfo/makeinfo is my problem... then I have a problem

I tried to install using Synaptic Package Manager and it said it have it,
but I tried your way anyway.

 $sudo apt-get install texinfo
<ask password>
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
texinfo is already the newest version.
texinfo set to manually installed.

Concerning target... the instructions I was given was to use
../binutils/configure --target=xxx --prefix=/opt/xxx/

NOW, I tried 
../binutils/configure --target=xxx-elf --prefix=/opt/xxx/
And I get just a tiny bit further, but it still dies in the ..../bfd/doc
directory with no information as to why.
I also the the
export TARGET=xxx-elf
export PREFIX=/opt/xxx/

and "xxx" is a substitute for the actual processor which is listed in the
bfd case choice as
and as I was looking I also did see 
"xxx" but no "xxx*"  Hmmmm...

So anybody have any pointers as to why this <insert sailor's colorful
descriptive language here> bfd keeps choking?

here is my latest run on Ubuntu 10.04 AND on cygwin, so I guess it is
pretty universal under Linux-like stuff:

WARNNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system.  You should only need it
          you modified a `.texi' or `.texinfo' file, or any other file
          indirectly affectin ghte aspect of the manual.  The spurious
          call might also be the consequence of using ia buggy `make'
          DU, IRIX).  You might want to install the `Texinfor' package or

          the `GNU make' package.  grab either from any GNU archive site.

What does "make[3]: *** [bfd.info] Error 1" mean?
What can I fix or look at to get it through this brick wall?  It gives me
no line number or nastygram of a program to fix.
Can you suggest what could possibly be something that I need to look at
and fix? <insert frustrated scream here>
thank you for your help
