That is certainly strange. The file in question is just fine and builds

first file built by the stage 2 compiler. I assume this means that it is

You can report a bug at upstream: 
but they tend to care not a whole lot about odd architectures.
Nevertheless maybe someone has seen the error before and can easily tell
what’s wrong.

Sorry that was a mistake by me: For some of them my dependency adjusting
regex failed, and they built against 7.4.1 by accident (and by
