OpenWrt: Split Toolchain for faster Firmware Build Times

Sven Bachmann
At work we’re using Hudson to automatically build projects whenever something is changed in a SCM. For most projects you’ll get fast results if your checkin breaks something which you don’t mind because you not always rebuild the complete project. Now, OpenWrt brings its own toolchain, which compiles the complete local and cross-compiling stuff because the compiler on the host is normally a bit behind and does not contain latest fixes for ARM and other architectures.
