And? When you read the whole posting you would have seen that the
cross-binutils were configured to work both with host and target
binaries.

| $ echo 'int main() {}' >foo.c
| $ gcc foo.c -o foo-host
| $ arm-xscale-linux-gnu-gcc foo.c -o foo-target
| $ arm-xscale-linux-gnu-strip foo-host
| $ arm-xscale-linux-gnu-strip foo-target

Please learn a little bit about rpm packaging. "the end of %install" and
%__spec_install_post will be expanded after the %configure call...

You should really read the whole posting and not only single phrases...
