I noticed this because you have to specify ARCH for "make headers_install" but
don't have to specify a CROSS_COMPILE prefix for that because it doesn't
build anything. Yet the first line it spits out is a complaint that it can't
find m68k-linux-gnu-gcc.

I do note that the error message doesn't stop the build, and seems to be
ignored...

*shrug* This is the eleventh target I've tried to build, and the first one
that has this behavior. It seemed unnecessary at best.
