As I understand it, with the first two times the toolchain is being 
built, and GMP, MPC, and MPFR aren't actually needed as part of said 
toolchain. With the last build, you're building the final system, and so 
they need to be installed in the system before building the new system's 
compiler.

Of course, I expect to be corrected by an editor who's been building it 
several thousand times a year. :)
