Hi Marcel,

I actually do this.

What I did is: 

1. Make a recursive copy of a xctoolchain.
2. Replace all the parts in that new toolchain with symlinks to the built versions
3. Edit the Info.plist to give the toolchain a unique name

It’s a hack, but currently it is otherwise quite problematic to build your own toolchain. There is a ticket open to make the build-script capable of this however, so hopefully this will be implemented.
