Well I've got one board ("tools", in local/tools/tools.config) to build
the toolchain which I then use as external toolchain to build several
other boards (all armeb-linux-uclibcgnu). So my toolchain lives in the
staging directory in the same tree.

This makes for a nice path-independent setup too.. other developers at
my company can check out the tree and build everything (including the
toolchain first) into any path they like.

So if this isn't a common approach then maybe it isn't a good default
after all.

Probably, I'll have to check tomorrow.
