The gcc bootstrap for gcc-3.2.2 does a 3 stage bootstrap too, but we
build gcc-3.2.2 once again in Chapter 5.

And I think that gcc-3.2.2 is not 'trusted' compiler for gcc-2.95.3,
like as host c compiler (gcc-2.95.3 in the hint) is not 'trusted' for
gcc-3.2.2, which compiled in Chapter 5. 

Best regards, Vladimir.
