the FSF gcc requires you to build the C compiler (I think - will check).
Thus a newly built C compiler is always available to build later stages.
We can't reasonably require everyone to build the C++ compiler (I
often don't - it speeds up the build considerably). So we would
need some new logic to handle this situation. It can doubtless
be done, but hasn't been done - mucking with the gcc build system
can be quite an adventure!
