Aha. Should've known that one :)
I found out what the problem is. The glibc version (2.2.4 or something I think) had a bug that didn't allow this
gcc version to be built. So I basically upgraded glibc a couple of notches, then upgraded gcc to 3.0.4, then upgraded
glibc again and then went for gcc 3.2, after which I upgraded glibc to the latest version.
I like building my own packages, but I agree, this one was a bit of a hassle.
