Thanks for it.

This part is now in somewhere else:

There are also two other issues with current GC7 CVS.

1) recently added support for hurd broke support for GNU/kFreeBSD
    please just move "*-*-gnu*)" case after "*-*-kfreebsd*-gnu)" in configure.ac

2) very outdated libtool (from year 2001), it does not support GNU/kFreeBSD
    please use latest stable libtool 1.5.22 (http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/),
    and update libtool.m4 and ltmain.sh

After that please regenerate configure by autoconf.

Please, could you include all three above mentioned changes,
as this makes GC7 functional on GNU/kFreeBSD (amd64 variant),
see bellow.

Many thanks
