   This is not true. We have different ARM machines that use different
CPUs and hardware. Given the versatility of the ARM platform, if the
argument "building the binaries on the same machine that uses the
binaries" was valid whatsoever, it would in fact be an argument in
favour of only using a standardised emulated platform.

   But you're sure that it's not because the compiler and the CPU are
