I managed to get the bootstrap procedure moving along by installing an older version of binutils. I'm continuing to build my prefix area with that change. But I took a look, and CentOS 5.5 provides gcc 4.4.4 in its 'base' repository as the 'gcc44' package, so maybe that would have worked. If I get a chance later I can try the prefix bootstrap again and see if binutils compiles with that.
