There are no guarantees about compiling old GCC releases with a more
modern version of GCC.  After all, we were not able to test this
combination when GCC 3.2 was released.

If you run into problems like this there are a few options:

  * try and fix the problems yourself so that you can get
    through the build
  * use a less modern version of GCC, like 3.4, and see if that
  * if all else fails, you might have to find another system
    that has gcc <= 3.2 to build 3.2.
