--prefix to put it somewhere else, or --program-transform-name (I
think that's what it's called) to prefix everything with nachos-, so
you can run nachos-gcc...
I'd also look at how the aout-gcc package is set up. Strictly
speaking, it's an i386-elf hosted i386-aout cross-compiler :-) so may
already have the right packaging decisions made. (If I'm right, let me
know -- I'll probably do a linux -x- m68k-netbsd compiler kit at some
