I get exactly the same reading. There is something weird going on.
I tried rebuilding the toolchain again from scratch, just in case.
No change.

Scanning config.log and the Makefiles gives no clue either.
Only references to /tools as it should be.

"make check", or "make -k check" keeps breaking. However, when I try
to catch the make output using e.g.:

(make -k check 2>%1 | tee testrun.log && exit $PIPESTATUS )

no obvious error occurs. Telling from this log not even a linker seems
to be called this turn. Does logging cause side effects upon make?
Nevertheless it tries to run "unix" tests via expect (seemingly 
successfully) while logging. Without logging all test runs break.

Possibly this affects DejaGNU testsuite only? Tomorrow I'll check what
happens in pass 2 gcc building.
