I fixed the build instructions on my page for binutils and egcs, but have
not tested or updated the binary packages to match yet.  glibc
instructions are not updated at this time because is down
and I can't verify the latested glibc version.

My page was just outdated.  I've been using the older versions since I'm
just working kernel issues and it is has been faster to build kernels on
an available PII/400.  rpms for egcs you're finding are most likely native
compilers.  There is no need to switch dists.  Also, I will update my
binary packages soon and the Debian should be available on the next
official Debian release.
