I am "trying" to test the 4-9 branch, but I am having trouble building 
some of the tools.
In particular, gcc-4.3.2 complained ta\hat it needed mpfr so I built 
mpfr and added a link to it in the gcc-4.3.2 source tree.
It then configured, but the build fails with:

Checking multilib configuration for libgcc...

See `config.log' for more details.
make[1]: *** [configure-target-libgcc] Error 1

make: *** [all] Error 2

Any suggestions of what is going on?
Would someone alo please comment on the proper way to build and install 
mpfr as part of the tool chain.

Thanks ,
