In general, I run `make bootstrap' from the top-level, such that
target libraries and other components of the toolchain are built as
well, ideally in parallel with GCC (setting NOTPARALLEL=ok).  There's
nothing like stage1, stage2 and stage3 in the top-level.  I believe
there are such targets in the gcc sub-directory, but using them is
definitely far from ideal.

I realize there are many different ways to work around this problem,
but I'd rather be able to do it with as little disruption to the
conventional process as possible.
