the package is not corrupt to start with - perhaps it's rendered corrupt by 
the program you used to download it (if you used an ftp console program, did 
you tell the ftp program to download the file as a binary and not as ascii 
(which is the default in most cases). If you download the file as an ASCII 
file, it will end up being corrupt yes.

I'd say leave gcc the way it is and just go on compiling the other programs 
and test if those programs compile fine and most important execute fine. When 
you actually reboot into LFS rather than just chroot into it, try recompiling 
GCC at that point.
