Can't configure Newlib for arm-elf target

Most likely you don't have (the proper) cross-compiler tools installed. For
this target the configure script tries to use the arm-elf-gcc and co. but it
falls back to gcc if it can't find one. Are you sure you have the arm
cross-compiler tools (and with the arm-elf- prefix in their name) in your
path? You can also force configure to use a particular compiler from the
command line.
