Is there a matrix available anywhere with current cross-build status
information? I'm interested in cross-building for various targets on
an i386 host, but I'm not sure what will work and what will be flakey.
I had some trouble with cross-building for sparc (most of the
resulting binaries would just dump core), but that was a while ago and
I'd like to see what will be expected to work before I try this out
entropy -- it's not just a good idea, it's the second law.
