Turns out I can't build gcc 3.3.1 with the gcc (3.2.3) that's on the 
test drive machine. The compiler doesn't seem to be able to include the 
proper definition for size_t when compiling libiberty/floatformat.c. 
This breaks both binutils 2.14 and gcc 3.3.1. Great.


gcc -c -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -g -O2 -I. 
-I../../binutils-2.14/libiberty/../include -W -Wall -Wtraditional 
-pedantic ../../binutils-2.14/libiberty/floatformat.c -o floatformat.o
../../binutils-2.14/libiberty/floatformat.c:25: syntax error before "size_t"
../../binutils-2.14/libiberty/floatformat.c:26: syntax error before "size_t"


It seems that the fixincludes script from gcc 3.2.3 broke the fixed 
stddef.h slightly, as size_t gets never defined when compiling the file.

bash-2.04$ gcc -E -H ../gcc-3.3.1/libiberty/floatformat.c 
-I../gcc-3.3.1/include | grep size_t

. ../gcc-3.3.1/include/floatformat.h
.. ../gcc-3.3.1/include/ansidecl.h
. /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/hppa2.0n-hp-hpux11.00/3.2.3/include/math.h
.. /usr/include/sys/stdsyms.h
. /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/hppa2.0n-hp-hpux11.00/3.2.3/include/stddef.h
extern void *memcpy (void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n);
extern void *memset (void *s, int c, size_t n);
Multiple include guards may be useful for:

I'm building gcc with hp's c compiler now, I hope that will work better.
