The last time this has been reported, the cause was the reporter having

This doesn't make any sense, nor do I see how this is related to your

FYI: the canonicalization triple's meaning is <CPU>-<VENDOR>-<OS> 
m68k-rtems is equivalent to m68k-unknown-rtems (CPU=m68k,
VENDOR=unknown, OS=rtems)

m68k-elf-rtems would mean CPU=m68k, VENDOR=elf, OS=rtems.

VENDOR here means board/HW vendor/manufacturer. With RTEMS, this field
is not used, so the actual value is meaningless.
