Ok, no cross compile, but we do have a pcc build sys, don't we?

Because this is the way we do for the pxe roms. If we build on i386, we just build
from sources. If we are in another arch, we pick a binary. The difference is
that is's not the binary provided by qemu, but the very own we built for
i386.
