That was just my point, not criticism.
Your document is very informative.

Real reason to not use pkgsrc gcc:
It doesn't accept SUN's pragmas.

About bulk build. Bulk build do not always mean building a lot of
packages.  I often run it like this

  distbb -p 'pkg1 pkg2'
  pkg_add -uu pkg1
  pkg_add -uu pkg2

This is not harder than

  cd /usr/pkgsrc/pkg1
  bmake update
  cd /usr/pkgsrc/pkg2
  bmake update

but much safer. On solaris it makes sense to use zones to isolate
building environment.

Perhaps I was not clear enough.

   ./bootstrap --prefix /opt/gcc-compiler
   cd ../lang/gcc34 && /opt/gcc-compiler/bin/bmake install
   cd ../../bootstrap
   env CC=/opt/gcc-compiler/bin/gcc ./bootstrap --prefix /opt/pkg
