Use tooltool gcc as host compiler for cross-mac builds
40 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
The switch to CentOS 6 threw cross-mac builds for a loop, in that the system GCC is 4.4, which our build system rejects as too old. I tried just using the clang we're using as the target compiler but that failed with a `crtbegin.o not found` error (there's another bug on this because ehsan hit it with static analysis builds). I just gave up and used tooltool GCC as the host compiler, this works: https://tools.taskcluster.net/task-inspector/#YApjoOTzQ3G2l2g0dWA1xQ/ If ehsan gets the clang thing sorted we can probably switch to that and avoid having to download two compilers.

Per bug 1203393 comment 4 you need the gcc package to provide the missing crtbegin.o anyway, so this is really not any worse.
