Okay. I'll totally rephrase this now:

Gentoo builds (almost) everything from source.
This is done via ebuilds.
There is grap this file:
And compile and install it.

To do this, i need a starting compiler, nothing more.

It would be nice to have a starting compiler like here:

And it would also be nice if you only need the version of your source -
like 1.9.8 - and can script the location of the starting compiler from
that. Like, in my case:
Which means, the location of the starting compiler should please not
change randomly, but change with the versions...like the source tarballs
also do.

Another thing needed is, surprise!, that the corresponding starting
compiler works, e.g. always is the binary taken from here:
But without all the unit's and stuff, which isnt needed to bootstrap...

I hope this clarified things a bit...
