Well, you should use ar, ranlib and such from the toolchain. I'm not sure but 
it might be the case that we accidently use the "ar", "ranlib" from the host 
GNU host and that it magically happens to work.

You will have to look at the line with "ar" and see if arm-*-ar was used and 
if not you will need to patch the Makefile to do so.
