Should Fedora packages have to deal with it at all "just because its a
c-compiler too?"  I think the scenario of striving to be able to build
glibc for 8051 on sdcc needs to be triaged into a different discussion.

What seems to be in the world of the possible is to retrofit the Fedora
- Fedora cross case into what exists already.  The benefits that fall
out of that in terms of regularizing upstreams for cross and making
definitive cross recipes (for gcc anyway!) will only help everyone else.
