Hmm...  Top-level bootstrap is sort of pointless unless you can
actually take advantage of it to add more tools (e.g., assembler,
linker) and libraries (libiberty, libgcc after it's split out of gcc)
in the bootstrap.  So I think it would be better to have
stage[123]/gcc instead of stage[123]-gcc.  Am I making any sense?
