Something needs to be fixed so that the package will build even with
both installed. Probably autoconf.

I'm not saying it is a bug, but that's the reason it didn't build.
If the package will build when the gcc source package is unpacked
in a suitable place (gcc and g77 subdirectories have the same
parent), then I see no problem. When we implement dependencies
for source packages, we're going to need dependencies on both
source and binary packages.
