two more build results for gcc 4.3.2

I located a couple of old machines to try, so I have two more successful
build reports, and one failure (though don't worry about the failure yet).

First one (includes C, C++, ObjC, Fortran, and Java)

i686-pc-linux-gnu on a RHEL 3 system.
boot compiler: gcc 3.3.6 (FSF release)
kernel: 2.4.21-32.EL (from Red Hat)
glibc: 2.3.2-95.33 (from Red Hat)
binutils: 2.17 (FSF release)
GMP: 4.1.2-5 (from Red Hat)
MPFR: 2.3.1

The failures and noise are evidently due to the ancient glibc.

Second one (includes C, C++, ObjC, and Fortran)

This is an HP 9000/800/L1000-36
Bootstrapped with gcc 3.2.3.
as is from binutils-2.18 (FSF), native linker
gmp is 4.2.2 (FSF)
mpfr is 2.3.1 (FSF)

No issues building GCC, I did have to turn off -Werror in a couple of
places to get binutils 2.18 to build with gcc.

I also found an ia64 box running Red Hat Advanced Workstation 2.1.
Yes, I know, really old, but I can't change it.  I tried a build

Bootstrap compiler is FSF gcc 3.2.3
kernel: kernel-2.4.18-e.12smp (from Red Hat)
glibc: 2.2.4-29.2 (from Red Hat)
binutils: 2.18 (FSF)
gmp: 4.2.2 (FSF)
mpfr: 2.3.1 (FSF)

but the bootstrap died.  gcc itself three-stage bootstrapped OK,
then died during the multilib configuration for libgcc.  It might
just have been an issue with the shared library path, now that I
look at it; I'll re-check.
