Please include an example.

        # Define CROSS_COMPILE=foo- if your compiler and binary utilities
        # are foo-cc, foo-ar, foo-strip, etc.  More specific variables
        # override this, so if you set CC=gcc CROSS_COMPILE=ia64-linux-gnu-
        # then the compiler will be 'gcc', not 'ia64-linux-gnu-gcc'.

Otherwise unless I happen to know the convention from other packages I
would not know whether to include a trailing '-' in CROSS_COMPILE,

Does the effect of this setting depend on whether CC=gcc (i.e., is the
Makefile checking the value of CC and ignoring CROSS_COMPILE when it
is e.g. the Intel compiler)?

Before, STRIP from the environment took precedence over STRIP from the
makefile.  Switching to the more usual 'environment can't be trusted'
convention is a good change, but please mention it in the commit

The rest looks good from a quick look.
