    toolchain.eclass: rework bootstrapping logic
    * Build stage1 compiler with user's CFLAGS. This consistently ends up
      saving at least 15 minutes for me on a fast amd64 machine and should save
      more on slower machines and architectures.
      There's only any risk here if the host compiler is ancient/very buggy and
      even then, you get a failed bootstrap later on. The GCC developers, per the
      linked bug, end up using STAGE1_CFLAGS="-O2" anyway to speed up the process
      so it's not like this is untested at all.
      mattst88 actually brought this up.. 10 years ago (bug #477548). Let's try
      make that right now.
    * Respect LDFLAGS for target libraries for native builds. Not touching this
      for cross builds, at least for now, as it's a bit more delicate.
      (Unfortunately, we have to put a hack in here for now until we can fix
      multilib.eclass - see bug #914881).
