Apparently, gcc is now licensed under GPL 3 and has been since gcc 4.2.2 was released. However, gcc 4.2.2, gcc 4.2.3 and even gcc 4.3.0 are all shipped with GPL 2 COPYING license files. Is this a major oversight? Note that the online docs also give the impression that gcc 4.3.0 is still GPL 2 licensed:
