This is possibly a stupid question -- but aren't the main sources in
the gcc subversion repository?

FWIW, we (www.plt-scheme.org) recently updated our copy from the gcc
repository, and it builds fine -- we have these patches:
* We recreated libffi/configure with autoconf version 2.61
* We changed config/multi.m4 (not inthe libffi directory) to allow
in-source-tree builds, the change is from line:
if test "$with_target_subdir" != "."; then
if test ! -z "$with_target_subdir" && test "$with_target_subdir" != "."; then
* Removed +live_support in src/powerpc/darwin_closure.S so it builds
with Mac OS X 10.3
