this doesn't look right you've got BINUTILSPREFIX=x86_64-freebsd
-INSTALL_PREFIX=... where you should have
BINUTILSPREFIX=x86_64-freebsd- INSTALL_PREFIX=... (note the space
after freebsd)

did you copy in paste or is this a typo?

it should contain a directory structure with the compiled units of the rtl, etc.

this is the folder with the files x86_64-freebsd-* in it (e.g. as, ld)
