The following are patch files that I apply to the binutils and gcc-4.4 in order to get them to build for use at an alternate prefix. I post these for general interest and discussion. I use these modifications to create tools that can be installed under /opt/.. instead of /usr/.. in support of a generic cross building environment that is stand alone and not specifically tied to a Debian environment.
I like these, a lot. Mostly because it gets rid of a hardcoded path and that's almost always a good thing. Plus, you did it in a way that makes the default still conform to the Debian Way.
I think these changes should go into the regular Debian packages, myself.
