Just do exactly what the book says. The gcc builds in chapter 5 are unusual because the three essential gcc libraries (gmp, mpc and mpfr) are incorporated from local sources rather than being compiled separately and fetched during the build. It is therefore essential that the procedure be copied correctly.
