Yes, this is what is required.  There isn't that much that needs
to be done though; last time I looked at it (couple of years ago)
the main problems were /bin/sh and some games, plus of course

I'd expect most of the Makefiles would still work providing that
CC=$(DEST_CC) and not $(BUILD_CC).

Of course CFLAGS and friends also need to be split out ... there
should be some email in the archives too.
