Description (last modified by Chris Johns)

If there are tools already installed under the $PREFIX path building a "host == build" compiler fails because the binaries under $PREFIX are MinGW tools which run and are executables how-ever they are not cygwin executables and the "host == build" compiler sees them in configure how-ever fails to detect the default suffix.

The RSB cannot delete the installed tools because other tools may be installed.

There must be a path being added somewhere. Until that is found the work around is to manually make sure no binutils tools are under the $PREFIX.

Set version based on title name, these seem obviously to only affect 4.11
