There's already a gcc4 branch, but it's not seen any commits yet.  It's 
now become outdated with regard to trunk.  I'll wait for gcc-4.0.1 to 
come out (they're just ironing out the last couple of showstoppers), 
then we'll re-cut the gcc4 branch.  I don't think getting a gcc-4.x 
version of a trunk-based book into a workable state will take too long. 
  Once it's ready on the branch, feel free to merge the stuff into 
cross-lfs.  I'll hold off merging to trunk until the BLFS project is 
ready, as I mentioned when the original gcc4 branch was created.

If those of you who have already built systems with gcc-4.x could send 
BLFS related patches to the BLFS guys, or make them otherwise visible to 
the LFS project, I'd appreciate it.  I don't want folks to have to trawl 
the various distro lists/forums to dig the patches up.
