IMHO, unless a copyright holder explicitly tells you to ignore the stated intent of the license drafter, you can safely ignore that possibility.

It basically all it means is that all constituent parts must meet *at least* the requirements of the GPL2 but it may grant more rights. The problem being that whatever GCC is doing grants less.
Messy, but I'm not sure if there's any easy solution here (other than the FSF blinking).
