 Port arm-none-eabi-gcc copies nano.specs and some projects looks for
 nano.specs as indication that newlib_nano libraries are installed. I saw
 [https://trac.macports.org/ticket/51397 ticket#51397] that looks like
 *_nano was supported at one time.

 I think the proper thing to do is either don't copy nano.specs (like the
 ubuntu arm-none-eabi-gcc install) or make the *_nano.a libraries using the
 instructions from ARM in the release notes
 [https://developer.arm.com/downloads/-/arm-gnu-toolchain-downloads here].
 Basically build with nano options in new build directory then use their

 I think I can get it working with some guidance on the proper way to do
 things. Should this be a variant on arm-none-eabi-gcc and just fetch{} to
 use original newlib download, build with the options from the linaro
 manifest, and do the renames to _nano post-build?
