Error building i9515 kernel

My linux build machine died some days ago, and then I lost my working build environment.
Luckily I found this helpful post on XDA with a working VM out-of-the-box and then, after the usual repo sync… I found a strange error during kernel build

/bin/sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/home/android/i9515/kernel/samsung/jf/scripts/ recipe for target 'scripts/mod/empty.o' failed

Changing the /bin/sh from /bin/dash to /bin/bash the error changes a little bit and shows some other infos

/bin/sh: -c: line 0: `set -e; echo ' CC scripts/mod/empty.o'; /home/android/i9515/kernel/samsung/jf/scripts/ /home/android/i9515/prebuilts/misc/linux-x86/ccache/ccache /home/android/i9515/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.9/bin/arm-eabi-gcc -Wp,-MD,scripts/mod/.empty.o.d -nostdinc -isystem ccache: FATAL: /home/android/i9515/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.9/bin/arm-eabi-gcc: execv returned (No such file or directory)

So…this is simple an error with my cross compiler configuration. Google team changes the compiler name from arm-eabi to arm-linux-androideabi, and so it’s very simple to fix.
