Well i downloaded that file in my toolchainbuilder, and discovered
it gives the error in the build process when you don't bootstrap,
like this:

  cd avr-libc-1.6.4-build
  ../avr-libc-1.6.4/configure --prefix=$SOMEDIR 
--build=`../avr-libc-1.6.4/config.guess` --host=avr
  make && make install

  config.status: error: cannot find input file: 

If you do bootstrap you do not get this error, as you and Timo explained.

So probably i did not expres myself clearly. I think i understand the 
but as it is right now, users have to bootstrap otherwise they experience the
bug i encountered. Developers do not notice it, since it is 'cured' by 
I only encountered it because my toolchainbuilder is not for developers, but for

So i am crazy or is there indeed something that needs to be corrected?
