Updating GCC on Centos 5.2

I am attempting to update GCC on our CentOS 5.2 server to the latest version as it supports Core2 optimisation, which I intend to use when compiling MySQL.
The server is currently running GCC 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42), which seems to be latest pre-compiled release for this distro.

I attempted to download and compile the GCC 4.3.3 sources, they seemed to compile (with a few warnings but no errors), but when I ran the test, there were a number of FAILs.
See the code block for how I compiled.

Does anyone has any advice on how I can do this?
tar -zxpf gcc-4.3.3.tar.gz
cd gcc-4.3.3
mkdir mkdist1
cd mkdist1
../configure --enable-threads
make -k check
