Neither, I wanted a go at it again (I haven't been messing with gcc
since 3.1 days)  so I started from last known working 3.2.3 and went on.

I'm not the maintainer of gcc, so I shall leave that up to Azarah to
decide, let him distill the different builds along with his own
experience to see what goes.

It may, so far it appears some old c++ code will barf though. not sure
about glibc and kernel issues either.

Thats up to the maintainer, since I havent taken the time to go through
the patches each in turn and verify wether it is needed anymore I just
commented it out to see what happened.  I suspect a lot of them are no
longer necessary, and those that are will have to be re-diffed in a new
manner, not really an easy task.

I suspect the real build won't enter portage until propolice is up in
speed though.
