  Okay, I tried again, but with:
  configure --enable-cxx --build=none-unknown-linux-gnu
  to build with just the plain vanilla.
  make succeeds.
  make check fails with an ld error.

  This doesn't seem like a compiler bug. Same everything except the
  option I used for the configure script.
We saw similar problems for a x86 fat build, then due to references
from the orphaned object mpn/generic/addsub_n.c.  I think newer
binutils works better, at least for x86.  If it is the same bug, this
patch should make binutils happier:


If this helps for you, I am curious what binutils version you're
