I am trying to install GCC and Gmake on  FreeBSd machine and faced following issues:

1)At directory gcc-3.3.2 I ran ./configure -enable-obsolete
2)error returned:
Please update *-*-freebsd* in gcc/config.gcc
Configure in /usr/home/iptk/gcc-3.3.2/gcc failed, exiting.

3)I have included this string in gcc/config.gcc with architecture string as i386 but still facing same issue.

The configuration and version details:
Machine arch:i386
FreeBSD version: FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE #0:
GCC version :gcc-3.3.2


1)I have un tarred the gmake-3.79.1.tgz but it did not create any gmake-3.79.1 directory.
2)Hence I am unable to run ./configure and make and make install.

The hardware details remain same.
The system is not connected to Internet so I cannot use pkg-add.

To give backdrop all this is needed to port linux code to FreeBSD.

Please let me know your inputs on the above,
Also please excuse me if it is wrong mailing list and please redirect it
to the correct one.

Thanks & Regards,
