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?
