Oh good questions.  Unfortunately I'm only building Redboot, which is 
all C code as far as I know.

And for the curious I'm working on the Xtensa architecture 
(www.tensilica.com for more info about Xtensa).  The compiler is the 
compiler supplied from Tensilica.  They have both gcc, and their own 
compiler.  Neither of which is named in the traditional GNU format 
(xtensa-elf-gcc etc), so the PREFIX didn't work for me.
