  I use my ABE tool (, which is
a crosstool-ng replacement to build win32 executables. As GCC can use a
relative path to the sysroot, ABE embeds it in a compiler sub-directory
to avoid problems. That way the toolchain files can be extracted
wherever the end user wants it. Works on Linux and Windows just fine.
