That log indicates that several key hipe runtime system files
never were compiled, and that's what's leading to the large
number of errors from the linker.

You appear to have a 'make' problem. If you aren't using
GNU make, then please do so.

FWIW, the current system (which will become the new OTP release
in a few weeks) is built regularly here with gcc-3.4.2, but
our environments are all Linux, or Solaris + GNU tools.
