.lo, for "local"-cpu object files in an obj tree where .o files are
otherwise for the target CPU. I think it conflicts with existing
targets in GNU Makefiles, though.

Does the stock FSF gcc or egcs already use an extension for
native-host object files, or are still supposed to compile and run
those (e.g., make float.h) on the target host?
