I think the theory with this is that you say "--target=mips-linux", or
whatever, the same way you would when compiling GCC. So long as you
have mips-linux-gcc in your PATH, everything will then "just work".
With your patch, it looks like users would have to say
"--target=mips-linux-" to get the same effect. I think people are going
to find this behaviour unexpected and confusing.
