I haven't had anything good happen with gcc-3.4.1, I'm not sure why its so 
picky... glibc doesn't like it. I think switching back to hjl binutils would 
be better then keeping fsf's. Hjl's beta has the relro feature and fsf will 
likely take a long time before releasing 2.16 w/ relro. Also had extra 
problems with gcc-3.4.1 with propolice with make bootstrap.

So ida know, I haven't found anything at all that's stable beyond the last 
hlfs book (gcc-3.3.3 + binutils-2.15 + glibc-2.3.3-lfs-5.1). If 
lfs-6.0-testing is near stable I would be surprized. Let me know what works 
for you with or without the hlfs patches.
