There are reasonably extensive instructions here:
FWIW here are my specific steps taken from above. They worked for me, they might work for others. Writing them out here for posterity and comment.

Download GCC 4.3 (or whatever version) from here:

Create build environment:

tar jxvf gcc-4.3.0.tar.bz2
mkdir gcc_obj
mkdir gcc_root

Run configure without a relative path, build with flags:

/home/builduser/gcc-4.3.0/configure --prefix=/home/builduser/gcc_root/ --exec-prefix=/home/builduser/gcc_root --disable-bootstrap --enable-languages=c,c++ && make CFLAGS="-g3 -O0" CPPFLAGS="-g3 -O0" CXXFLAGS="-g3 -O0"

(Note 1: I specify -O0 even though it is the default. I've no idea what is in the GCC makefile, so pedantically setting)
(Note 2: Not sure if --exec-prefix is needed when --prefix is set, but pedantically setting it)
(Note 3: Did not set -j as I ran into problems with GCC build obliterating my laptop ;) )

make install

Then to build my test-case:

export PATH=/home/builduser/gcc_root/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/builduser/gcc_root/lib:/home/builduser/gcc_root/lib64

[localhost testcases]$ which g++

[localhost testcases]$ g++ -g3 throw_testcase.cxx -o throw_testcase

[localhost testcases]$ ldd throw_testcase => (0x00007fff9b9ff000) => /home/builduser/gcc_root/lib64/ (0x0000000000602000) => /lib64/ (0x0000003c4a200000) => /home/builduser/gcc_root/lib64/ (0x0000000000110000) => /lib64/ (0x0000003c49e00000)
/lib64/ (0x0000003c49a00000)
