That's bootstrap.  It's the recommended install procedure.  :)
1.  Compile gcc with installed compiler (stage 1)
2.  Compile gcc using the gcc you compiled in stage 1 (stage 2)
3.  Compile gcc using the gcc you compiled in stage 2 (stage 3)
4.  Compare the stage2 and stage3 objects.  They SHOULD be identical.
    If not, you have a problem.

If you're low on disk space, you can make bootstrap-lean and it'll
delete objects as soon as it no longer needs them.

Oh, and create your own build subdirectory to do your bootstrap in.
Please.  Building in the source tree is bad, mm'kay?  :)
