As stated in the book, you must remove ALL source and build directories
after installation. You cannot reuse any of them. So yes, you have to
remove the gcc source dir and unpack it again (and I hope you also
removed all other package source dirs as well).
BTW, creating multiple build directories instead of simply removing them
after installing will technically work, as long as you make absolutely
sure you're using the right one. However, it is more prone to error so
it is not a good idea.
