I did this a while ago and my info might have been obsoleted :)
Anyway just to upgrade the gcc with same binutils and stuff hwat I did is,
iirc...

1. configure with necessary option
2. make
3. make install

ofcourse you would want this to install in a different location so it wont
corrupt the pre existing gcc.

Suppose you already have a working gcc tool chain and you are doing what the original poster is, getting a later release up.  Are there make targets more suitable for this?  It has always seemed a little odd to me to have to do the bootstrap every time.
