Say build is i686-linux, target is i686-linux and host is ia64-linux.
The just built gcc will be hosted on ia64-linux and targeted for
i686-linux. How do you run the just built ia64-linux gcc binary on
i686-linux? In that case, the compiler used to build gcc is a cross
compiler from i686-linux to ia64-linux. The compiler for build is the
native compiler for i686-linux. When I did that last time, I made sure
the native compiler came from the same source.

gcc 3.2 may not have the changes needed for your scheme to work.
