Ok, so do you have the library in the mentioned path OpenFOAM/linux/gcc-4.2.1/lib/libiberty.a ?
If you don't, then you need to install it. One way is to compile yourself the latest gcc.
Another way (I found this on google - search ubuntu libiberty) is to install binutils-dev. It should be included with it.
