Well, there's a bit of extra magic required if your binutils exec-prefix is
not the same as your gcc exec-prefix. Instead of using "--with-gnu-as
--with-gnu-ld" when configuring gcc, you should instead use
"--with-as=/PATH/TO/arm-elf-as --with-ld=/PATH/TO/arm-elf-ld" filling in
the blanks as appropriate :-).

To try and simplify the build instructions we didn't mention this. Perhaps
we should?
