i made some mods:

changed $$(LC_ROOT) to $${LC_ROOT} because it seems to
be passed to bash in config.status (as $$(, \$( and  $(
and the last one executes LC_ROOT as a command, this
might be an autoconf bug: it does not escape the args

for me make fails in bfd/doc despite MAKINFO=false, but
the export AM_MAKEFLAGS=INFO_DEPS= hack fixed it.

src_mpfr dep was wrong.

i like saving the build log, but 2>&1 might not be what
everybody wants.

and linux headers are often needed to build things so
there could be an install target for it:

install-linuxheaders: install-toolchain
	case $(TARGET) in \
	i*86* | x86_64* | x32*) A=x86 ;; \
	arm*) A=arm ;; \
	aarch64*) A=arm64 ;; \
	mips*) A=mips ;; \
	or1k*) A=openrisc ;; \
	sh* | j[24]*) A=sh ;; \
	powerpc* | ppc*) A=powerpc ;; \
	microblaze*) A=microblaze ;; \
	esac; \
	$(MAKE) -C ../src_linux headers_install ARCH=$$A \
