* RFC only, because it maybe doesn't fix any real issue (I've noticed
  only because I was comparing 2 sysroots debuging some other issues and
  was wondering why we have so many dangling symlinks).

* first symlink is bypassing sstate (created in
  ${STAGING_DIR_NATIVE} instead of ${D}${STAGING_DIR_NATIVE}) this is
  maybe worth fixing

* was g++ omitted intentionally from symlinks?

* should binutils provided tools be created by binutils recipes? Or was
  it simplified like this, so that binutils don't need to know gcc's BINV?

* the same does apply to gcc-cross-initial and gcc-cross-canadian, so if
  we decide to implement this or something similar it should cover all 3

* g77 and gfortran aren't created by default, so it was creating dangling
  symlinks, which probably doesn't hurt

* I've tested that resulting image/ looks the same before and after this
  patch with exception of g++ link (and possibly gfortran one when
