gcc42 doesn't build on Mac OS X 10.3.9 Panther with Xcode 1.5 and MacPorts 1.7.0 on a Power Mac G4:

Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

This was also reported on macports-users in June 2007 where it was determined that a build dependency on gmake and the line "build.cmd gmake" is needed to give Panther a newer GNU make, but that then one runs into the error:

/usr/bin/libtool: unknown option character `m' 
in: -macosx_version_min

This sounds similar to the problem encountered building gcc43 on Panther.

There was also a ticket filed for problems building gcc42 4.2-20060204 on Panther which was never resolved, but those errors look different and may have been taken care of via newer versions of gcc 4.2.
