The following patch allows to build using CROSS_COMPILE from the environment.
I have an automated system which works like this, but it chokes on MIPS when
I use it with (albeit non-standard-named) cross-compiler tools.  An easy
workaround I'm using is to put CROSS_COMPILE on the make command line, but it 
would
be nice to use the definition already in the environment when I work
manually in the system.

For past discussion of this see:
http://www.linux-mips.org/archives/linux-mips/2003-02/msg00196.html

I'm not sure why the change didn't make it in back in 2003, but
if the complaint was about the use of "?=", that seems to be in use
other places, and fairly standard now.

For example, from the top level kernel Makefile:
ARCH            ?= $(SUBARCH)
CROSS_COMPILE   ?=
