Error building cross-compiler

Hi all,

I'm trying to set up for some Rockbox development, but I'm having trouble
building the cross compiler. I'm using Kubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex), and
trying to build the cross compiler for iPod (arm).

When I run the script, it starts out OK, and downloads and
extracts binutils and gcc, but ultimately I get the following error:

> /bin/sh ./libtool --mode=link gcc -W -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes
> -Wmissing-prototypes -U_FORTIFY_SOURCE -o -rpath
> /opt/rbdev/arm-elf/i686-pc-linux-gnu/arm-elf/lib -release 2.16.1

Any pointers?

Any other system information you might need to help diagnose?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
