I agree. Let's try to, over time, get rid of the need for scratchbox.
I strongly support this goal :)
It probably means improving gcc and binutils (this is already
progressing), getting the general awareness of how to build good build
systems up to a reasonable level and a strong movement to use the normal
open source software components in embedded systems (not just the kernels).
By the way, I don't think you really need it to compile X;
I seem to recall the ptxdist folks have a way of cross-compiling that
XFree86 supports cross-compilation out of the box. You just need to know
how to configure it. It ain't rocket science but not very trivial either.
