I wouldn't characterize any particular toolchain as "officially"
sanctioned. uClinux-dist was intended to be able to be used with a
variety of toolchains.

I know this limits.h problem has come up before with CodeSourcery
toolchains. I actually thought it had been resolved years ago. If
not we should figure out a proper fix (where ever is appropriate)
and get it applied.
