This, and bugs in crosscompiling toolchains prohibit doing this. But
what about emulating a buildd with qemu/basilisk2/... and setting up a
distcc with crosscompiling gcc on the Host? So the
linking/installing/testing/running procedures would run inside the
emulated hardware and only the compiling itself (!) would be done
using a cross compiler.
