Correct. Except staying as close as possible with upstream.

Trust me, I know. I do this for all kind of stuff in rules (e.g. for skia itself, see below)

s390x doesn't matter here at all as it is be and skia doesn't support be at all. Thus we get --disable-skia and thus no clang usage.

But generally you're right, but I am trying to stay as close upstream as possible here.
