	No worries - maybe one per MACHINE and MACHINE_ARCH, just because.

	Could you send me a copy of yours?

	I'd probably go for a generic script that sets everything except 
	MACHINE and MACHINE_ARCH, as part of cross/cross-binutils, then
	a per MACHINE/MACHINE_ARCH wrapper. (or two wrappers if we want
	a 'shell env' vs 'make wrapper').

	Thoughts? any env additions to sakamoto's script?
