--enable-host-shared or --enable-shared-gcc or some other such option 
name, please, not plain --enable-shared with currently refers to the 
libraries built for the target.  Whether the target libraries should be 
shared libraries is a choice completely independent of whether to build 
GCC itself as a shared library (or libraries? - since you have lots of 
separate front ends that don't currently expect to be linked together, 
although actually making it possible to link them together is probably 
only a few days' work).
