While generating a (temporary) cross.txt file is not a huge deal, being
able to directly pass the necessary options to meson via command line
options would be a tad nicer.

Jussi, would this be hard to implement? Is there a good reason why
cross-compilation uses a separate file?

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
