coreboot triggers many issues in distribution toolchains, so if you
get strange behavior or odd build problems then it's a good idea to
use a clean toolchain for building coreboot. The script
util/crossgcc/buildgcc automates the building, and coreboot build
system will pick up the default output from buildgcc automatically.
Give that a try.
