When linking, 'ld' would look for a configuration labeled "alpha:arm",
but could only find configurations labeled "arm", "arm32", ...etc. In
otherwords, there appeared to be a disconnect between one tool (the
scripts) incorporating the host information and the other (ld/bfd)
only using the target name.
This was true in 126.96.36.199.13 as well, and the posted fix is what
eventually got the cross compiler going again. This arose when
using --target=arm-unknown-linuxelf on a DEC alpha. I don't think
I had the problem occur on Linux.
