You can use the same $TOOLDIR for all architectures. In some cases you
don't even need to build a toolchain for a different architecture (i.e.
$MACHINE), if the architecture is based on the same CPU (i.e.
$MACHINE_ARCH) of an already build toolchain. In such cases a
"./ ... makewrapper" is enough. But you will need to build the
toolchain for the new architecture if you need $MACHINE dependent tools,
e.g. tools to create boot images.
