pkgsrc on opensolaris - is gcc rebuild still required?

The pkgsrc users guide says (relevant up to and including solaris 9)
"It is recommended that an external gcc be used only for bootstrapping,
then either build gcc from lang/gcc or install a binary gcc package,
then remove gcc used during bootstrapping."

Is this advice still relevant? I'm running with a recent opensolaris
build (solaris 11, nevada) which comes with the sun freeware version of
gcc  - 3.4.3.

Is there any merit to using the pkgsrc gcc, or is the 'external' gcc

Many thanks,
