As I think you realised, srtbegin.o was a typo for crtbegin.o - and
that is installed by gcc deep down below /usr/lib/gcc/.  But you
must have had it to be able to get this far.

But apart from whatever caused this breakage, you seem to have a
further problem. I was pleased to see that your log covered all the
steps in building that package, but shocked that it carried on after
the error during 'make'.  In the book we do not cover automation, we
expect people (at least on their first build) to type the commands
in, run them, and watch for errors. If you did that, you would have
seen the Error message after make.

I almost wonder if there were unnoticed errors in previous packages.
