Ah, I didn't see that.  So the issue here is that the host compiler
miscompiles the in-tree copy?  Maybe we should compile host libraries with
-O0 during stage1 (and require recent host GCC for compiling
cross compilers - which we probably do anyway).

It's an issue anyway as soon as we bump the versions downloaded
by contrib/download_prerequesites.  What "newer" versions are
affected, btw?  Are "very newer" versions fixed maybe?

Hmm, ok.  Is the piece referencing contrib/download_prerequesites
and documenting that as the recommended way to setup and do
in-tree builds?

Generally we have conflicting goals - we want to make sure
GCC works with system supplied versions of the libraries
(thus the configure version checks), and we want to specify
versions that work for the in-tree builds (because of the
somewhat awkward setup of the build because of their inter-dependencies
and not doing intermediate installs).
