When building the toolchain, one would normally use CFLAGS_FOR_TARGET
and CXXFLAGS_FOR_TARGET to control the options passed to xgcc when
building libstdc++.  Whether this will do the right thing for your
libc, I don't know.

There isn't really a good way to add new options to the compiler which
are automatically used, except to introduce a new configuration.
