 I've been playing with kernels recently and I don't think I've built
gcc-3.4.x on an LFS-5.1 base, but I'm sure lots of people have.  I've
certainly used a (ppc) debian system to build binutils- and
gcc-3.3.4 in /usr/local, and used those to build a 2.15.9x binutils and
gcc-3.4.2 in /opt/newtools.  I just repeat the first TWO steps of a new
lfs, but with a different prefix and without the static linking.

 To emphasise what I said earlier, building a newer version of gcc over
the top of the existing one (e.g. both in /usr) might cause grief one
day, and you really need to ensure you are using an _appropriate_
version of binutils for the new version of gcc.
