All I did was build some cross tools, called them armeb-gcc, etc.
setenv ARCH arm
setenv CROSS_COMPILE armeb-
and ended up with a big endian U-Boot. I started hacking from
there and haven't seen any problems. If there are any, we have
not found them yet.

I think you worry too much, and naming the same tool by those two
names would seem to be more of a problem than doing it properly.
If the tools are built correctly for big endian ARM, it seems everything
I have no further comments on the subject. Good Luck. :-)
