Yes it is, but package/Makefile.in doesn't use that setting, but uses
--sysroot regardless for the external toolchain.

Anyway, gcc 4.3.2 / armeb / EABI seems to build. When I first started
with buildroot I couldn't get anything better than 4.1.2 / OABI to
build, so I stuck with it. Mind you, I couldn't build anything else
after the toolchain - still need to debug that.
