Why are you trying to build --target=i386-rtems4.7, if you plan to use

i386-rtems4.7 is meant to be used with rtems-CVS, and i386-rtems4.6 is
meant to be used with rtems-4.6.x.

However this has nothing to do with your toolchain build issues.

Here, your native gcc (presumably 4.x) trips a bug in gcc-3.x's sources.

Either you switch to using an older native gcc or you switch to using a
newer rtems-gcc from the gcc-3.x series for rtems-4.6.x rsp to gcc-4.0.x
for rtems-CVS/4.7
