Isn't really helpful, since its more or less a hack for getting
ocaml compiled on his individual arm-compiler, with all 
hardcoded pathes, etc.

I have to pass the toolchain commands by environment variables
and entirely work with an sysroot'ed build.

Such fixes for some really specific target are quite trivial, 
but being really cross-platform, also with crosscompiling, 
is a little bit more compilicated. The commonly used buildsystems
are not really suited for that.

I've now moved some more steps on my external buildconf database:
Defined some common variables (ie. endianess, type sizes, ...)
and rewritten ./configure to query the db instead of trying to
guess these things by itself.

I'll send some patches soon...
