Needs to? No, we could continue using the ppc32 build_cc for every
stage. We test less that way, but it does work. The compiler that
builds gen* doesn't need to be the compiler that builds gcc et al.
My point is, whoever changes build_cc is the one to change the build
libraries, too. Having two different places coordinating one decision
leads to maintenance headaches (see the recent binutils discussion
about src/intl/ for example).
