Somehow gcc accidentally used an out-of-date assembler.

>/usr/src/RPM/BUILD/src/builddir/gcc/xgcc -B/usr/src/RPM/BUILD/src/builddir/gcc/
>-B/usr/ia64-mandrake-linux/bin/ -I/usr/ia64-mandrake-linux/include -O2

The -B options here are in the wrong order.  If you have an old assembler in
/usr/ia64-mandrake-linux/bin/, then gcc will accidentally use this old
assembler instead of the new assembler in /usr/src/.../builddir/gcc.
This can be fixed by doing a "make install-gas" as Jes suggested, or by
renaming the old /usr/ia64-mandrake-linux tree to move it out of the way as
Bill suggested.

We've had a lot of problems with ordering of these -B options.  It has been
broken and fixed several times this year.  The current stable compiler I am
maintaining was made from a FSF gcc snapshot when this was broken.  This
is only a problem when there is an ABI change though, so hopefully you only
have to deal with this once.
