Just use the ones in H-i686-pc-cygwin/bin
The ones in powerpc-eabi/bin are used internally by the compiler so that
there are versions of those tools in known locations, independent of the

Those tools are exactly the same as the ones in H-i686-pc-cygwin/bin, but
it is unwise to use them because they have the same names as your native
