I only hit this with ar.
We actually only have the host-prefixed tools, so the others should be fine.

About AC_SUBST: I just wanted to keep the patch small. Why use two lines if it can be done in one.
Feel free to amend though, if you prefer

Is it needed only for ar? What about other bintools (ld, etc)? Also, what is wrong in using AC_SUBST?

This patch changes to look for '${host}-ar' before looking for the unprefixed 'ar'.
This id useful when cross-compiling when all your binutils are prefixed.
I used AC_CHECK_TOOLS instead of AC_CHECK_TOOL, since autoconf docs say that the former calls AC_SUBST
