The compiler barfed on the -s. It produced pages of output without so much
as a warning. Then, as you  can see below, it hit the -s and stopped with an
error message. I'm pasting the last  few lines of make's output below. The
rest looks uninteresting but I'll send it if you want.

The compiler docs say it's GNU 2.7.2 with certain extensions to support
Objective C and AltiVec instructions.

As always, feel free to ask if I can provide more help.
