I created a brand new virtual machine running Ubuntu 18.04 (x86_64), installed the prereqs as listed here: https://gcc.gnu.org/install/prerequisites.html, created the repo following the "Getting Started - Read Only" instructions listed here: https://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/GitMirror, then ran these commands from my build folder.
