Back when I was making HP-UX cross builds work, thorpej and lukem
suggested that gcc was the way to go for the bootstrap.

It didn't look like a lot of work would be needed to make other
compilers work, but since gcc is available for most (all?)
interesting potential cross build platforms there doesn't seem to be a
huge benefit to such efforts either.

I went with the flow and used gcc.
