Change the "help" info to emphasize that this option refers
specifically to packaging the toolchain that would be built anyway.


  hoping i'm not misreading this, but it seems clear that as the
toolchain must be constructed anyway, this option refers only to
packaging it as a tarball.

-	  This is essentially the toolchain created by OpenWrt.
