So did I!  I know that developers have had occasion to do cross-builds
from, at least, Linux, Darwin, and FreeBSD.  There's even some work in
the tree that results form an effort to cross-build under Windows.  I'm
not sure how a problem like the one you're reporting could linger for
8 years, but certainly people really are cross building our tree.
