Why? Where do these gcc/g++'s come from.

The GNU toolchain by defaults installs cross tools with the host prefix,
so the person having built these "qk-"prefixed toolchains must have done
something nasty or hasn't understood how prefixing the tools works.

Anyway, if you want to make your like simpler you an simply install
symlinks using the correct prefix.
