You cannot bootstrap on the spu target but you can build a cross
compiler and just run the testsuite like you would run a native
compiler (as long as the spu-elf runner is turned on which normally is
running). This is the way I test the spu-elf target and may other
folks do (they also run the gdb testsuite this way).
