I will give the most simple one a spin then [prep].
Hold on applying this for a while.

It is rather me who missed something I'm afraid.
The Makefile in ppc/boot/utils is not needed at all and can be deleted.
The "host-prog := " in ppc/boot/Makefile is all what is needed.
[tools/ shall be removed from subdir- := in boot/makefile]

I would like to delete all the tool selection stuff in boot/Makefile.
As you say it does not matter for the total build time.
OK with you?
