another solution:

the macports arm-elf-binutils package installs all tools with arm-elf
prefix, while the target configure script expects arm-elf-linux.

in the toplevel Makefile there is an explicit override of CC with
all the other tools are searched for with the 'arm-elf-linux-' prefix.

also note this warning in the configure output:
configure: WARNING: using cross tools not prefixed with host triplet

two possible solutions:

1) add symlinks with the arm-elf-linux for all relevant binaries.

for i in strip objdump ar ranlib; do ln -sf $(dirname $(which
arm-elf-gcc))/arm-elf-$i ~/bin/arm-elf-linux-$i; done

2) add more overrides to the target configure line
