Building g77 on Suse 8.1

We need to install g77 on our Penguin Opteron box running Suse 8.1
I'd settle for a 32 bit install but would prefer 64 bit.
First, I downloaded g77.0.5.23.tar.gz, assuming that it would be easiest to just build from source considering all the library variants out there.
g77 is not standalone, it requires gcc.
So I downloaded gcc-3.3.2.tar.gz
That requires zlib, so I successfully installed zlib.
Now it's asking for libiberty, and while I found a package called shared-libiberty,
it seems suspicious, it's from Sun, and ./configure fails, so without looking, I assume it's the wrong one.

This seems like the wrong solution. Isn't there a gcc installation that is self-contained?
What packages do I have to install in order to make gcc work?
certainly, I have gcc 3.2.2 already installed on the system.

There are AMD64 (or x86_64 as SuSE likes to call it) rpm packages for g77. Have a look here if that sounds like something you'd like to try. I don't know if they require glibc to be x86_64-compiled or not, so your mileage may vary.
