Hm.  Can you give some detail on this?  I've been working on replacing the
cross case, as there's some very important problems that just doing
"--target=" will exacerbate.

In short, the configury needs to be done with --build= --host=, but there's
more to that.  You'll see toolchain2netbsd disappear today, being replaced
by src/tools/toolchain/mknative (which is half done in-tree at the moment),
using this configuration method to produce the "native" build files.
