I agree with Matt here. Even with file-name expansion and my $TOOLDIR/bin
in my path, it's still much of a pain to type "mipsel--netbsd-objdump"
than just "objdump". I still get stuck now typing the `wrong' thing
after such a long time using a 1.5.x box as a cross-build host that that
"BFD_UNIFIED=yes" in /etc/mk.conf.
