[Exherbo-dev] Unprefixed toolchain executables

A couple of months ago we had a discussion about readding unprefixed
toolchain executables to the user PATH, but banning their usage in the
exheres-0 environment. The Paludis support for this was finally merged
yesterday. And the documentation and the toolchain package changes has
just now been merged.

This requires everybody to reinstall paludis before upgrading the
toolchain packages.

If you've been testing this previously, you should verify
that /etc/env.d/banned_by_package_manager/ does not exist, or follow
the procedure in the news item to get rid of it, if it exists.

For exheres-0 authors see BANNEDDIR in
and dobanned in the utils section.

Once done kernels and other stuff should no longer require arguments
like HOSTCC=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc CROSS_COMPILE=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-
etc. for building correctly.
