Yes, you did. Don't do that. The stuff in dist is hacked.
If you need to build a different gcc, get a fresh distribution and
build it outside of the tree. You should have no trouble using an
external toolchain -- build.sh makes that easy.
If you need to integrate a new toolchain into the existing netbsd
tree, well, don't. It requires expert help.
