You should always invoke a cross-compiler via its full name. The toolchain 
provides the short-named versions for its own internal use.

As a general rule you should only add the directory containing the 
full-named tools to your PATH - and this is what ecosenv.sh does - because 
on a typical machine the short-named tools would conflict with the 
host-native compiler and other tools in /usr/bin.
