Subject: AMD64 to VAX crossbuild fails?

I was just trying to cross-build for VAX from my AMD64 machine
(with -current from yesterday).

It failed when it tried to compile something, since there was no gcc
built (lots of other cross tools did exist).

It seems this is known, given the message in the middle of the log that
I now see. But wasn't it the case that the VAX uses an older gcc, so
that one could be built instead?

Part of the build log:
