Then there is something broken with your build/install of gcc-3.4. GCC
adds the required references to it's internal libraries. If the
libraries are close relatives of the default system ones then you might
need to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point it elsewhere.

You can by specifying the BUILD request as such:

But I would recomend against it. It ties the executable to that
location. It's better to set up the LD_LIBRARY_PATH correctly.
