When you are porting to a new architecture you can satisfy all

That's a joke, right? Do you realize how hard it is to cross-compile a
lot of packages? For example, ones that do simple things like use some
of the build products during the build?
Or, how about "cross-compiling" from unstable to stable. Care to tell
me how to build a cross-compiler for that?
Or, how about wanting to compile from (audited) source for security
reasons. Care to explain that cross-compiler?
