We agree on it, but I think accepting that it makes no sense then it is
out of scope and just confusing the issue with a need that can't be met.

Yep I understood it.  I also build for 8051 derivatives and so on, but I
don't expect Fedora packaging to give me any help for what to build down
there: it doesn't seem reasonable.  ARM9 that can handle the kernel and
so on -- and gcc -- is a different matter.

Sure.  But nothing Fedora can do can help with Fedora-Foo crosses where
Foo is a wildcard and your plan is to replace their spec file anyway.

What it can do something about is the Fedora-Fedora cross case, and
specfile patching would be a neat solution.
