I have never tried egcs.

However, it looks like you have the same problem that NetBSD users have:

If you want to track the -current version of something, then you must
religiously maintain your toolchain.

NetBSD-core has a nasty habit of changing ld, or config, or whatever, soon
after a release, so NetBSD-current rarely builds out of a stock NetBSD-1.3
install.  Rather, you have to upgrade your toolchain, possibly involving more
than one step, and only then may you compile -current.

Same here: it looks like the egcs maintainers want you to keep your toolchain
(in this case GCC 2.8) up to date.
