Not a full test or a full report, but I downloaded RC1 (just gcc-core
and gcc-g++) on an NFS mounted directory, ran "make bootstrap" as
myself, and then ran "make install" as root.  Since the directory is
NFS mounted, root does not have write privileges on the object
directory.  The bootstrap went fine, but the install failed with:

Making install in testsuite

Does anybody else see this?  I imagine this would be fairly annoying
for some people.
