If there is a directory called "ld" in the current
directory, and your PATH searches the current directory
before other directories, the command "gcc x.c -o x" fails
with: "collect2: ld returned 33 exit status".  The problem
probably exists on all architectures and may occur under
other circumstances.  I have only tested it on RH6.0 x86.
Found while trying to run configure in binutils.

Easiest way around is to remove "." from your PATH.
