I will, thanks. I just wanted to point out that tools/ is
our official way to build the crosscompiler, and doing things
differently may well result in getting a toolchain that doesn't work or
has subtle issues.

While of course people are free to use whatever toolchain they like,
encouraging people who don't know better to do things differently from
the official instructions can result in confusion and support issues.
