I could build some if you provide me an account.

Using patch do:
gzip -cd gcc-2.7.2.tar.gz | tar xf -
gzip -cd gcc-2.7.2-1.diff.gz | patch -p0
then configure and build the compiler. Don't forget to install the
float.h from the ftp-server over the one installed by the compilation
procedure into <prefix>/lib/gcc-lib/<target>/<version>/include/float.h.
And do only build the C, C++ and Objective-C compiler, *not* protoize/
