Did I miss something? Is this something that others can use? btw: the

I agree, I've used crosstool before on different embedded projects. I
suppose my suggestion to integrate crosstool into buildrom doesn't fly.

I did some digging in the Config.lb files and couldn't find an example.
Do you have one? Is there any doc on how to control things like CC,
CFLAGS and the like? I didn't realize things could be shunted this way.
