No simple way. If you make
"${TOOLDIR}/${MACHINE_GNU_PLATFORM}/include" a symlink
to "${DESTDIR}/usr/include", and set your path to
"${TOOLDIR}/${MACHINE_GNU_PLATFORM}/bin:${PATH}", you'll be
cross-compiling, but it may require some art to get various packages
to accept that. For "pkgsrc", assuming you get your package to build
in the first place, you'll want to set ${MACHINE} and ${DESTDIR}.
(That's the easy part.)
