OK, understood. It is unusual to bootstrap Debian from source, but it
is more usual to bootstrap it from binaries[1] with a tool called
debootstrap. But anyway, if you are trying to bootstrap gcc from
source (exactly same thing i am pursuing but in a cross from) on a
native system, you might have to:

$ apt-get source gcc-4.4
$ cd gcc-4.4-*
$ BOOTSTRAP=lean dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot  (please make
sure of that, BOOTSTRAP variable accepts 3 different values, i am not
sure which one is the one you need)

Then you explain us what happend because this might be half way
implemented I have never tested bootstrapping a native compiler.
