Just hand-edit the 'makefile' (and 'x2p/makefile') to delete the lines 
containing '<command-line>' and '<builtin>'  (which might be '<built-in>', 
I don't exactly recall).  They are output by "newer" versions of gcc and 
not recognized by 5.8.8's build system.  They are harmless.  Just delete 
them and you can continue with the test.
