the root problem of everything is: due to nature of how cdebootstrap
works, the build host must be able to execute linux binaries of the
architecture we are building the system for.

besides that e.g. windows can't run linux binaries, this is also the
reason why one can't build cross-arch-images (except e.g. i386 on amd64
or powerpc on ppc64, since amd64 and ppc64 can be biarch) right now.
