It just occurred to me that you can't use the 4.5 toolset with more
recent snapshots anyway.  So the issue of specifying m68k- as the prefix
is irrelevant.  You need a new toolset anyway due to .h movement between
newlib and RTEMS.

Moreover, it would be easier and more reliable to provide symbolic 
links to the expected names than try to trick the build process.
