It would be nice to add this tip to  egcs-yymmdd/INSTALL/BUILD.
Currently it says: {
Building a native compiler
For a native build issue the command "make bootstrap".  This will build
the entire egcs compiler system, which includes the following steps:

  Build host tools necessary to build the compiler such as texinfo, bison,

  Build target tools for use by the compiler such as gas, gld, and binutils.
