 If you want to use a newer major version of gcc, you need to know
what has changed, and then you can either correct patches or seds so
that they continue to work, or add whatever new instructions and
packages are needed.

 For clfs (which continues to use patches for gcc), I know someone
has built with gcc-4.3, but I haven't looked at their findings so I
don't know what needed to be changed.  For LFS, I don't remember if
anyone has built successfully with gcc-4.3 : you might be out on
your own.
