I don't think so. When building a cross compiler, the target assembler is needed only when 
compiling runtime-library code with the new compiler, at the end. And the error happens quite at 
the begiinning of the process, where 32-bit or 64-bit x86 code is created for the new 
cross-compiler (which runs as a 32-bit or 64-bit x86 binary).

I appreciate the reply, but I don't think this has anything to do with it,, for the same reasons as
