Build cross tools for PowerQUICCIII

I've attached some patches Freescale has developed and sent Dan K. to 
include into crosstool.  Feel free to use these until Dan K. 
incorporates them into crosstool:

Two patches are needed for crosstool-0.28-rc37, and are attached:

1/ e500 toolchain patch.

This patch contains the following:

   - spe patches for glibc-2.3.2 and glibc-2.3.2,
     - gcc-3.4.3-e500-glibc-2.3.3-spe.dat
     - powerpc-e500.dat
     - powerpc-e500.config (e500 kernel config for 2.6.9)
     - will build an e500 toolchain comprising gcc-3.4.3
glibc-2.3.3, and binutils-2.15

2/ getandpatch EXTRA_PATCHES patch.

This is a patch for getandpatch to permit additional patches (in
addition to the standard crosstool patches) that are needed to be
applied for a toolchain build.  To do this the environment variable
EXTRA_PATCHES is set to the name of the patches needed.  For example
when building the e500 toolchain EXTRA_PATCHES needs to be set to "spe"
to apply the spe patches to glibc.  The glibc spe patches are located
in: crosstool-0.28-rc37/patches/glibc-2.3.2-spe
  The advantage that this gives is that all the standard crosstool 
for glibc-2.3.2 can remain in their original directory, and the spe
patches are applied in addition to the normal glibc patches.
