The real core of the issue is how gcc is looking for mpfr/mpc/gmp .

The lfs build approach for gcc is actually 'advised against' by at least
part of upstream: so maybe that needs reviewed, likely post-7.5 (cf also
Pierre's posts from earlier on Sat 1st); and gcc upstream could - _if_
they were at all like you - take a 'let LFS fix it' approach on any gcc
issues ("don't bug us unless you fix your build approach", etc).
