I'm waiting for 5.3.1 before I even try to install it on my main
desktop machine. But I've installed it in a virtual gentoo ~amd64
machine, so I know that the failure you are seeing was introduced when
the 'jit' useflag was added to the gcc ebuild.
You can work around the failure by installing 5.3.0 with the -jit
useflag (which should succeed) and *then* switch to 5.3.0 using
gcc-config before re-installing 5.3.0 with +jit.
David mentioned that he succeeded by using gcc-4.9 but I had to use the
workaround I described above.
