It's an old system yes, but you might be able to get it to work. The LFS CVS 
book has modified instructions to build GCC. In essence we use 
$LFS/static/bin/ld and $LFS/static/bin/as for building GCC rather than the 
files from the host distribution. That way even you have an ancient binutils 
installed, it won't matter because it's not used. The rest of your system 
should be good enough to get through chapter 5. It's worth a try and I'd like 
to hear back from you if it worked or not.

See for the CVS version
