There are some places where it doesn't matter if it's the GNU triplet
or Nix system string (e.g. libflame, tlsdate) and there are some places
where the difference does matter (e.g. the definition of libpasastro
seems buggy o me).

When compiling GCC (version M) with GCC (version N), first version M is compiled
using version N, then the resulting gcc is used to compile GCC (version M) 
As I understand it, the idea is to let the end result be independent from the
compiler one started out with.
