Because somebody might want to build gcc targeting another
library than newlib. Glibc comes to mind for example.

Therefore it would be questionnable to tie gcc to a
particular C library. It is part of the normal build process
to provide gcc with the target library and header files.

(argueably, gcc's configure could find out that you have
newlib in the source tree and automatically use it, but then
those using Glibc would be jealous :-) ).
