it is still integrated ... at least, we attempted exactly that in CrOS with 
gcc-4.8 and it was not possible to build libgcc & libstdc++ w/out also building 
the local copy of the compiler.

i'm not sure why we're forcing this from the perspective of glibc.  being able 
to install the C library headers for a target should not require probing the 
assembler/linker/compiler.  the installed headers are the same regardless.
