I think this route might be more effort than it's worth.  The GCC 3 
stuff hasn't been seriously maintained in several years.  Also, as
I suspect you're aware, things build with GCC 3 default options have
a chance of not working on the BeagleBoard.

I suggest going straight to GCC 4.1.  If you have any problems building
your stuff with that, we easily help you there.
