I couldn't use GCC 4.3.1 because it needs gmp, and the bootstrap
instructions use --nodeps at this point, so I decided to go with 4.2.4,
even though I was tempted to unleash 4.3.1.

Hmmm, I just did a standard install, so got gcc and gmake by default.

Hmmm, I didn't need that, perhaps because your system was very clean.

Probably the same reason

Sounds logical as they are dependencies.
