> efivar fails to cross build from source, because it compiles the build
> tool makeguids with the host architecture compiler and then fails
> running it. It also runs the build architecture pkg-config. Switching
> makeguids to the build architecture compiler and passing CROSS_COMPILE
> to make makes both cross and native builds just work. Please consider
