Hi Claude,

egcs-1.0.tar.gz includes EVERYTHING: C, C++, Objective C, Fortran, you
name it!  Since it's such a large package, the egcs developers decided to
break it down into pieces: egcs-core-1.0.tar.gz, egcs-g++-1.0.tar.gz, and
so on.

So, all you need is egcs-1.0.tar.gz if you want to build all languages.

I hope this helps.
