Probably the first thing I would do is compile a single stage with the
system compiler, then run the testsuite and see if anything pops up.

That would avoid a level of indirection (and potentially a ton of work) if
indeed the problem is that the compiler is mis-compiling itself.  

Of course, sometimes that procedure produces 100% good results and you
have to debug things the hard way....  But it's helped enough that it's
usually worth trying.
