the issue got away misteriously. I got gcc45 working fine
now. It's been successfully updated several times since
my last post. I don't know what was the problem. MPFR and GMP
pass all tests. In the end I removed everything from /etc/make.conf,
so now mpfr, gmp and gcc45 are built with just the
default settings on my sparc.
