successfully compiled when gmake bootstrap-lean is used. Why so. This
was on HPUX 11.11 for version 3.3.2

I thought OP might be asking why it took so long for gcc build to
implement a default which should know when bootstrap is required. Only
the recent versions can build from scratch without explicit bootstrap
option.
