I thought there already were several packages in pkgsrc to help with
doing cross compilation. Do those do anything beyond just building
an appropriate compiler?
Once you have the tools built, isn't it just a matter of setting
CC=$TOOLDIR/<foo>-gcc, and telling pkgsrc to install into a separate destdir?
Since no-one has done it yet, there's probably more to do, but I don't have
much of an idea of what beyond pointing at the right C compiler would be
necessary, so when I hear someone say "I did a bunch of work to import X again"
it really sounds like amount of work it take to do that outweighs what it
would take to get it working in pkgsrc.
