Should, this word is good choosen. I tried some crosscompiles from Alpha
and Sparc64 to vax, powerpc, sparc, m68k, ... I got really funny errors
from gcc. Coredumps due to SIG11, memory leaks, ... Crosscompiling with
gcc may work well, but only if the build host is a x86 machine.

[1] NetBSD makes crosscompiling easy. A single call to build.sh and it
will (cross)compile a complete release.
