Hello Tony,

Thanks for your effort!

One more nitpick: I think that this shouldn't go to the main
Makefile. The bottom of src/gcc.mk is a better place for that.
There, we also create the TARGET-pkg-config wrapper script.

Also, you should prefer "echo" over "printf" as the letter interprets
special characters and escape sequences, which is what we usually
don't want. This, again, is also what we use for the TARGET-pkg-config

In summary, I recommend to add something along the following lines
to the bottom of gcc.mk:

    # create the CMake toolchain file
    (echo 'Line #1'; \
     echo 'Line #2'; \
     echo 'Last Line') \
     > '$(PREFIX)/$(TARGET)/...some.good.place...

If you've changed the patch this way, and adjusted it to Dan's
helpful advices, feel free to check this in before the release.
This is a very important simplification for anyone wanting to
add a CMake based packages to mingw-cross-env.
