I think I remember now why I did --with-local-prefix=/usr
it was to fix the cpp problems people were having. if
local-prefix=/usr/local gcc started to look for files in /usr/local
(when in chroot) and there were no files, so cpp aborted after a while
wtih argument list too long. Remember those problems?

I'll be looking into this thing again myself as well. I'll also be
trying a few things. If somebody can actually try the suggestions that
were made and verify that cpp:argument list too long errors don't appear
when local-prefix is set to /usr/local I'd appreciate that (would mean
less work for me)
