Just as a side note, gcc does not directly depend on itself. Or,
rather, gcc-4.3 depends on packages which are produced by gcc-4.3, but
also by gcc-4.2 and so on. So they don't depend directly on
themselves. Which is not the case here. My question: how did you build
it, then ?

You managed to build it at some point. You didn't have it before and
you had it after. So you did manage one to work around that. So you
should be able to build it without build-depending on itself, no ?
And, no, thanks, I don't have time to dedicate to this problem, sorry.
