[RFC PATCH] clean up use of ia64 tool chain check scripts --resent

Hello list,

ia64 seems to be the only one that use arch specific scripts to check
tool chain bugs that create the dependency on ia64 cross tool chain
that make the command : make ARCH=ia64 olconfig failed if ia64 cross
tool chain is __not__ installed or OBJDUMP and CC is __not__ set with
correct path on a non-ia64 box. Given the current state of art of
the tool chain, I don't know if these checks are still useful.
Please consider the following patch.
