Following the recipe for building the toolchain, I got stuck building

The configure error message is:

$ROOT/source/glibc/configure --host=hppa-linux --build=$MACH 
--prefix=$DEST/hppa-linux --with-headers=$ROOT/source/linux/include 
--disable-profile --without-cvs --enable-add-ons
checking for assembler line separator... *** You need a newer assembler
to compile glibc

The log contains:

configure:2942: checking for assembler line separator
configure:2949: gcc -v -Wa,-v -c  conftest.s 1>&5
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-suse-linux/2.95.2/specs
gcc version 2.95.2 19991024 (release)

GNU assembler version 2.9.5 (i486-suse-linux) using BFD version
conftest.s: Assembler messages:
conftest.s:1: Error: invalid character '_' in mnemonic

The binaries called and the version numbers are shown. Do I need to
upgrade the assembler or is it a PATH misconfiguration? Thanks.
