I've used rockboxdev.sh and ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu was very slow at that time. I wanted to use other GNU mirror instead, which made me add this enhancement.

Now you can use any other GNU mirror (list available at http://www.gnu.org/prep/ftp.html) in the script.

You must set the GNU_MIRROR environment variable with the mirror's URL.

Usage example:
# GNU_MIRROR=http://mirrors.kernel.org/gnu ./rockboxdev.sh
This task depends upon

The following patch enhances the output produced by rockboxdev.sh script for the user.
It is complementary to the first patch in this tracker item, as it notifies the user of an alternative for the URL the GNU tools are downloaded from.
