Yes. Debian moved everything for some reason. It's a problem that must
be addressed somehow before gcc 4.7 is released.
It's extremely unfortunate that this will make it impossible to build
older releases of gcc on newer Debian installations.
a patch is pending, but afaiu, Joseph requested some kind of official definition
for the multiarch triplets which do not yet exist at this point of time. If
this is not an absolute requirement, I can update my patch again, and only
enable it, when an explicit configure option is provided.
