Based on our discussion, I don't want to merge this patch. I think the
user shouldn't have to manually set host compiler and flags in
menuconfig. I'd prefer to fix stuff by adding missing host builds, or by
including extra directories in HOST_CFLAGS/HOST_LDFLAGS automatically
based on the detected host system.
