Most of the packages containing a firmware for specific CPUs (I am sure
for openbios-ppc and openbios-sparc) can be built using a
cross-compiler. That's probably something we should allow in the archive
if this is implemented, and in the case of openbios, that would mean a
single source package can be used instead.
