Modify rules.defs to use both GCC_TARGET in addition to DEB_TARGET_GNU_TYPE if both are specified

Bug Description

The patch attached to this bug modifies the rules.defs file so that -a$(GCC_TARGET) is specified in addition to -t$(DEB_TARGET_GNU_TYPE) when calling dpkg-architecture if both are defined. This behavior is only invoked if DEB_TARGET_GNU_TYPE is defined in the first place. This allows one to easily build for an arch (say, "sh4") and have the compiler be named "sh-elf" instead of "sh4-linux-gnu" without having to modify any of the tables used by dpkg-architecture.
