Er...I might not have thought this through enough but the reason I
brought this up on IRC the other day was that I'm not convinced this
won't be equivalent if you're changing the arch and compiler out
underneath. Where will the i586 versions of those packages be to
bootstrap with? And what will happen when something wants a static
library file to link against?
