You are still using gcc 2.4.5.  Upgrade to 2.7.2 like so:

cd /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/gcc
# will die in libgcc
make install
make clean && make && make install

The behavior you see is definitely a bug; <sys/cdefs.h> (or whatever)
should make sure that __GNUC_MINOR__ >= 5 before trying to use the
'noreturn' attribute.  See the GCC texinfo documentation for details.

The '__builtin_next_arg' complaints are related to GCC's
varargs/stdarg implementation, and probably result from a similar bug.
