OK, did that, everything went smoothly :)

Hmm, strangely my build-output file has not been replaced - does it only
get created if it doesn't exist to start with?

Yep, got that.

This hung in the middle, though a ctrl-C appeared to let to complete

This ended with:

  make[4]: Entering directory `/home/adamr/gccsdk/gcc/builddir-cross/arm-unknown-r
  test -z "/home/adamr/gccsdk/gcc/cross/bin" || mkdir -p -- "/home/adamr/gccsdk/gc

  Fatal configuration error.  See the libtool docs for more information.

I wonder if this is because I've not got all the dependencies for libtool.
Perhaps using Alan's trick (export WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.9) will allow me to
satisfy libtool. I'll try it out next time I do the whole build process.
