I ran into that issue as well. My build script does something like
sed -i -e s@^CONFIG_CROSS_COMPILE=\"[^\"]*\"\$@CONFIG_CROSS_COMPILE=\"\"@
sed -i -e
sed -i -e s/^CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y\$/#\ CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO\ is\ not\ set/
to patch up two two annoying settings and the last one to make the compiler
run a little quicker and increase chances for a hit in ccache.
But for benefit of the rest of the world I've applied tihs patch and will
also patch up powertv_defconfig which now is the last CONFIG_CROSS_COMPILE
