Both of them are simultaneously build from one binutils-source tar-ball.

One difference however, gcc and newlib are built simultaneously, from a
unified source-tree, and then split into several shared
base-gccnewlib-<language> and <target>-gccnewlib-<language> for shipping

IIRC, there is an explanation in RTEMS documentation somewhere (Getting
