It's a good question - It's actually okay because of how gcc builds.
Say you are going to build 3.3.2 with 3.3.1
What happens is that stage 1 builds 3.3.2 with 3.3.1
Stage 2 then builds 3.3.2 with the 3.3.2 you just built in stage 1.
Stage 3 (optional) then builds 3.3.2 with the 3.3.2 built in stage 2.
The binary output of stage 2 and stage 3 are then compared to make sure they
are identical.
That's why it takes so long to build the thing :)

Also, gcc is written in C. 3.3.1 is okay for C, it's just the C++ bits that
are broken.
