yes, inside a chroot jail.  That part hasn't changed in quite some time.

gcc-3.3.5.  It was built via pkgsrc but with the following:

.if defined(TOOLCHAIN_BUILD)
BUILDLINK_PASSTHRU_DIRS+=       /opt/sfw/gcc-3.2/lib
LDFLAGS+=               -Wl,-R/opt/sfw/gcc-3.2/lib
SITE_SPECIFIC_PKGS+=    lang/gcc3-c
SITE_SPECIFIC_PKGS+=    lang/gcc3-c++
SITE_SPECIFIC_PKGS+=    lang/gcc3-f77
LOCALBASE=              /opt/tools/pkg
PACKAGES=               /opt/tools/packages
PKG_DBDIR=              /opt/tools/var

and after that I commented out the TOOLCHAIN_BUILD part.  This gave me a 
slightly more up to date compiler than the /opt/sfw one.  I also then 
took /opt/sfw out of my path.

I'll note that the compiler setup and chroot setup have not changed in 
probably a year and things were working correctly as recently as a few 
weeks ago.
