I suggest that if you want to choose a Gcc version you will have the fewest
headaches with the newest Gcc before the 4.x series.
I'm getting good results with 3.4.6.

No they do not all need to be compiled with the same version, but if you 
start to
install many different versions of Gcc on your box you increase the risk 
something might get mixed up sooner or later.  LFS 5.1.1 should have been
built with Gcc 3.3.3.  If that's still the one installed on your system, 
just use that
unless you encounter a specific problem/reason to use a newer on.
