Where did you get the GNU tarball from? contrib/marcus/attic ?

The tarball in that directory is obsolete and has a number of known serious
installation problems.

Our recommended method of installing GNU is by using crosshurd. If for some
reason you can't use crosshurd (ie, no debian system and uncapable of
setting up a chroot jail), there's a still-deprecated-but-not-so-old
tarball in contrib/robertmh. I don't recommend using it though.
