I don't see any good in changing to elf by itself. There are unresolved
issues (remember the "how to tell linux elf from svr4 elf" problems)
and no clear benefit besides the probability of a working cross-compilation
system increasing a by a not yet known percentage. So I guess this very
much depends...
