That's right. What we did was to create dummy compilers that return the
same values as the real compiler when called with -v and -dM etc. This is
no longer needed, as a "custom compiler" can be created instead.
I suggest to read the values from the remote compiler, and create a local
custom compiler with the same values (except include directories which
should be adapted to the local sysroot location).
