Not just because of the testing, but also because of the way it is
built. Pass1-binutils is built using the host-gcc and host-glibc.
Pass1-gcc is built using the Pass1-binutils and host-glibc. Then glibc
is built using Pass1-binutils and Pass1-gcc. Then Pass2-binutils and
Pass2-gcc are rebuilt against the new glibc.
Hence all that is needed is a proper host gcc that is capable of
building the new binutils and new gcc. This is not true in the way the
current lfs is built. I think you are confusing the word "any
toolchain". Any toolchain does not mean a broken toolchain. If your host
compiler silently compiles incorrect code, there are no guarantees.
