OpenBSD has a cross-compiler build rule in the root Makefile.  They also
kept 'configure' in the tree.  Part of the build rule is running
'configure' for the proper host/target, building the compiler,
assembler, and installing them into a directory in ${OBJDIR}.  Then those
tools are used to build the rest of the system.
