I recommend you create symlinks (for example) from cpu-vendor-os-mpicxx
(or whatever) to mpicxx so that the auto tools find your cross tools
where they are expecting to find them.

This is, IME, a much easier and better solution, especially if one
implements it using something like, where one may
need to maintain different versions of the stock tools on the build
machine in order to use particular versions of those tools for any given
product release build.
