Deprecate the support for the toolchain on target
As discussed during the ELCE 2012 Buildroot Developers Meeting, we no longer want to support the possibility of building a toolchain for the target. None of the core developers have any use for this, it has been known to be broken or cause problems for a long time without anyone providing fixes for it. In addition to this, Buildroot is inherently a cross-compilation tool, so the usage of a native toolchain on the target is not really useful. Many newcomers are tempted to use this possibility even though it is clearly not the intended usage of Buildroot.
