Rich, what would you think of changing from a hardcoded "gcc" to using
something along these lines:

[ -z "$REALGCC" ] && REALGCC=gcc
$REALGCC <the current parameters>

By setting REALGCC to rawgcc, Landley's toolchain could easily be used.
This would also help for using other cross-toolchains.
(note: I'm not particular about the variable, but $GCC might be a bad
choice: ISTR seeing one or two Makefiles that set that.)
