I like to knw why we use "gmake bootstrap-lean" to compile GCC instead
of "gmake". How they are different and what behaviour changes are
there in 2 cases for GCC compiler.
We have no idea why you do that.
The difference is that during bootstrap-lean old stages are removed
when they are no longer needed. That is, bootstrap-lean uses less
disk space. There is no difference in the compiler.
