There is one quirk I have noticed, at least I think I have. Next time I
should log more to check if I'm really right. But the impression that I
have is that if I build for arch A, then for arch B, and then for arch A
again (without updating the sources in the mean time of course), that it
re-builds all (many?) of the cross-A tools again, even though it isn't
necessary. This might be similar/related.
