Hmm...  I don't quite like a blank default.  I'd much rather default
to <host/target>-<tool>, since this at least gives the user the
opportunity to adjust PATH after configure, and gives more of an idea
of what's going on.

Nevertheless, this patch is correct, and approved.  The change in the
default should be addressed as a separate patch.
