Note the difference between arm-elf and arm-elf-linux. The latter is
what we configure for. But because that compiler doesn't work CC is
overridden with a hard code to arm-elf-gcc. (Which works fine!)

It looks like the other way around to me. I added ?= so that the
variable only gets set if it does not already have a value, while
previously I think it was overwritten by the value in Makefile?

Anyway I reworked a little, so that HOST= can be used to specify the
desired host tuple, which is then used both for configure, and passed
on to the target/firmware Makefile. Patch attached.
