Sets a prefix to be prepended to commands used by the GCC toolchain.

gccprefix ("prefix")

GCC toolsets, and cross-compilers in particular, typically have some common prefix prepended to all tools in the GCC suite. This prefix will be prepended to all such tools.

Prefixes are usually composed of multiple segments separated by '-', and the prefix should contain the final dash. For instance, a toolchain of the style powerpc-eabi-gcc should have gccprefix powerpc-eabi-.
