Maybe "Build with verified toolchain" and if that option is selected,
have make search for a (cross-)gcc which has "coreboot" somewhere in its
--version output and fail otherwise? That way we could make sure the
cross-toolchain is indeed sane (as opposed to a semi-broken cross
toolchain downloaded somewhere on the net).

If that pickup could be made conditional on said Kconfig option, it
would be perfect.

I'm happy with anything that increases the likelihood of a working
build, so feel free to ignore what I said above.
