I don't know which cross compilation environment you mean (Joel?), but the
gnu cross compilers are "cheap" cross compilers.

They don't contain a full gcc binary, but use the native compiler together
with a specs file, some symlinks to the native compiler gcc-lib tree and a
wrapper script.

The source package contains "make-cross" by Gordon Matzigkeit.

because we can use the native compiler to cross compile for the Hurd, the
package is very small and the compiler works reliable.
