BASE_VER is part of gcc source.  Did you copy the `libgpc'
subdirectory as instructed?  If you used symliks for `libgpc',
then the path `../../../gcc-4.3.5/libgpc/../gcc/BASE-VER'
will lead to wrong place.  Normally this symlinks resolves
to `../../../gcc-4.3.5/gcc/BASE-VER' which is present in
distributed gcc sources.
