The "proper" way to do that (whatever it is) won't help you because
all it will tell you is if pkgsrc was bootstrapped with a
cross-compiler, which isn't the case you're interested in.

The avr-libc package needs additional hacks to avoid passing in
pkgsrc's CFLAGS at all. Just about anything that could end up in the
pkgsrc CFLAGS is most likely inappropriate for avr-libc, including
machine-specific things users add from mk.conf.

Moreover, probably everything that gets set by default in
CONFIGURE_ENV and BUILD_ENV and related variables needs to be

That or we could build a bunch of infrastructure to explicitly support
packages like this (that need to be built with a specific
cross-compiler and not with the regular pkgsrc compiler) but that's
likely to be an immense amount of work.
