no detection of cpu-manufacturer-cc if gcc is present?

I assume a non-gcc cross compiler should ideally be installed as
cpu-manufacturer-cc, lets say arm-steffens-cc. But I was told
that for arm-steffens platform then configure searches
arm-steffens-gcc, arm-gcc, gcc, arm-steffens-cc - but because gcc
usually exists, too, it will never use arm-steffens-cc, even if
following checks detect that this compiler is not working.

Is this intended? Shouldn't configure check for prefix-tools

(The workaround calling it *-gcc is simple and works and *-cc had
to be created/symlinked/wrapper anyway, so this is no practical
problem at all, I just wonder why it is as it is :-))

Have a nice weekend!
