 I do have $(HOME)/local/powerpc-ibm-eabi/bin/ar.exe
 and I am using $(HOME)/local/bin/xar.exe for my stuff here, after install.
 To bootstrap, GCC may better use $(HOME)/local/powerpc-ibm-eabi/bin/ar.exe
 but that will not be in the path, so GCC needs to call it with full path.

 I was thinking "combined tree" was not as good, mostly because I had to
 select which common part of the trees to keep - and well, I may have
 choosen the binutils ones (difficult to report a bug to binutils when you
 did not use their source to generate).
 Thanks for the trick about using cpio with or without the -u option (better
 than "rm -rf" in Makefile), and to show the order you use too.
