My deepest apologies; false alarm.

This problem is evidently due to use of ./configure --srcdir:  when I
moved the source directories, I didn't remove the build directory,
which contains symlinks to the source directory.  Even though I did
configure again, it did not update the symlinks, which now are

I thought I looked at the gcc output, but if you look closely you see
that although the correct paths are output as absolute paths, the
bogus paths to the missing files are given as _relative_ paths.
