The "INSTALL" file's instructions for customization are pretty easy
to follow, did you try them? There is an "i486-linux-gcc" in the "config"
directory, so just start with that (per the "INSTALL" instructions)
and see what happens. Even if it doesn't work perfectly, it'll probably
only take a tweak or two.

E.g., there was no FreeBSD config already defined, but the "386pc-bsdi-gcc"
entry turned out to work well enough, given a few overrides added in the
"site" file...
