Thanks for all your researches, they are very interesting.

I've definitely never used multilib toolchains with the external
toolchain support. That's something that must be extended.

In the menuconfig, the CPU type can be specified in the « Target
Architecture Variant », the value of this option can be used to call
-print-sysroot properly.

And as you said, the handling of «Target Architecture Variant» is
currently incorrect for external toolchains.

Do you want me to work on this, or do you plan to work on it yourself ?
