Why?

As I understand the lore, this is one of the sticking points Theo had with the NetBSD boys -- cross-compilation is a source of untold errors which can be very hard to track down. Here are some threads from the archives of misc@ you should understand:Cross-compiling requires significant knowledge of both platforms in order to be successful. Finding someone conversant in both who will has the same interest to see this to the end will be difficult to impossible. If this is a subject you are very passionate about, you should begin studying what kind of object files GCC emits. Following that, study GCC's linker -- in depth.
