Well, to be fair, you can of course use an external toolchain from a
vendor, be it distributed in binary or in source-form.

See the "Toolchain" menu, "External binary toolchain".

If you run into problems with such toolchains, your best bet is to talk
to the one who provided that external toolchain.
That said, it sounds like this is just a normal ARM target, so there
should be no real need to use such an old compiler, from my POV.
