The complete log file from configure

Trying to install 2.10.9-r2 on Gentoo for Itanium (ia64) produces the following error in configure:

checking for _U_dyn_register in -lunwind... no
configure: error: library libunwind not found

The symbol exists in libunwind as provided by version 0.9.9, but not the 1.0 versions, or the version provided by gcc.

We no longer support Itanium.
