Try to replace "crosszipinstall" with "info" in your command.  This will 
tell you what tools it's trying to use.

What I do, is add the directory where I've installed my binutils to the 
path, like this:

export PATH=/opt/arm-linux/bin/:$PATH

This directory contains the cross binutils with the prefix "arm-linux-".

Then I can build it like this:

make -s clean crossall crosszipinstall FPC="/path/to/bootstrap/ppc" 

Then you know the compiler will look for arm-linux-as and arm-linux-ld, 
which will save you some confusion.  You can also use CROSSBINDIR 
instead of changing the path.
