I understand your concerns, though I personally prefer using a non-
standard tool over messing with wrapper scripts or bloating the build 
system with things far away from being straight forward.

As long as it is only about finding a GCC path, I certainly wouldn't 
recommend a proprietary solution either, but I have the feeling that 
things will become more challenging as soon as we will build for other 
platforms then IA32 too.
