# Searching for installed target binutils.  We need to take extra care,
# else we may find the wrong assembler, linker, etc., and lose.
#
# First try --with-build-time-tools, if specified.
#
# For build != host, we ask the installed GCC for the name of the tool it
# uses, and accept it if it is an absolute path.  This is because the
# only good choice for a compiler is the same GCC version that is being
# installed (or we couldn't make target libraries), and we assume that
# on the host system we'll have not only the same GCC version, but also
# the same binutils version.
#
# For build == host, search the same directories that the installed
# compiler will search.  We used to do this for the assembler, linker,
# and nm only; for simplicity of configuration, however, we extend this
# criterion to tools (such as ar and ranlib) that are never invoked by
# the compiler, to avoid mismatches.
#
# Also note we have to check MD_EXEC_PREFIX before checking the user's path
# if build == target.  This makes the most sense only when bootstrapping,
# but we also do so when build != host.  In this case, we hope that the
