Commit Message

Olivier Galibert Aug. 24, 2021, 8:34 a.m. UTC
Add the configure parameters
{AS,LD,AR,OBJDUMP,OBJCOPY,GPROF}=path to optionally force the
path for these programs without having to tweak the output of
$CC -print-prog-name in some way.

In addition, when {AS,LD}=... is used the corresponding program
version is not check.  The user gets to keep all the pieces if it
blows.

In practice, according to a build log on x86-64, $AS and $LD are never
used directly.  $AR, $OBJDUMP and $OBJCOPY are though, and the llvm
variants don't seem to have any issue.

v2: Use variable assignments instead of --with-xxx
v3: Denitsify
