I'm actually using pre built binary crosscompilers from Montavista on my 
linux boxes, and I used your Crosstool(http://kegel.com/crosstool/) 
scripts to build a cygwin hosted cross compiler. Both envs ended up 
needing the sym link from as->ppc_405-as.

I have tried setting the path up in different ways, with ONLY the cross 
compielr bins in it, with it first, and usuall toolchain in a later 
section of PATH, and with the cross compilers as the last item in the PATH.

Does distcc/distccd ignore the AS environment variable? How does the 
"system" determine which AS should be used?

	Thanks, Josh
