The official package contains that file, so either you deleted it or you're running some unofficial gcc package. Besides that, we recently compiled this kernel with the gcc package from our repositories, so if it was a bug in gcc, it would have failed for us too.

Indeed it is, but in my case, it is in /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.6.2

I think it couldn't be found.
