Yep, tried these, and for some reason, when I ran ./configure to build GCC6, it told me that I needed those libraries.  The error message was,

checking for the correct version of gmp.h... no
configure: error: Building GCC requires GMP 4.2+, MPFR 2.4.0+ and MPC 0.8.0+.

So, I said, let me just do this, and there will not be any excuse. :-)

Yeah.  Seems like the whole world is thinking like that. :-)  I do have linux boxes at home, but I also have windows.  Thanks for all the help.  I will let you know the outcome.  Already built GMP and MPFR.  Now running 'make' on MPC.  This one should take less time than MPFR.  GMP took a good 3 hours just to run make.  YIKES.  Later.
