I'd set this up in mk/platform.mk.  Check out how arm-apple-ios does it:

CFG_IOS_SDK = $(shell xcrun --show-sdk-path -sdk iphoneos 2>/dev/null)
CFG_IOS_FLAGS = -target armv7-apple-darwin -isysroot $(CFG_IOS_SDK)
CFG_CFLAGS_arm-apple-ios := -arch armv7 -mfpu=vfp3 $(CFG_IOS_FLAGS)

I agree it takes a while.  ccache is a big help but it still takes a while.
