Same place you get hold of the old version of gcc and gmake, if you
feel you need that level of reproducability. This is actually not as
unfair a comparison as it may seem since the behavior of gcc and gmake
both affect the's generated by `make dist', and thus the
behavior of the version used affects what the user will see

In fact, some "configuration management" systems keep the toolchain
under revision control for similar reasons.
