Every time gcc gets imported in a new place, it creates a monster
subtree on the CVS server that never goes away and has to be traversed
in detail on every CVS update. This is already a problem and creating
more and more of these is not a winner.

My inclination is to reuse gnu/dist/gcc4 and treat it as one more
thing that can't be cleaned up fully until we manage to dump CVS.
