The "rpm --root" approach is not applicable to cross toolchains, because
cross tools are native host binaries and produce binaries for a target.

The "rpm --root" approach would be applicable to set up a
cross-toolchain's target environment (i.e. the target environment being
_used_ by a cross-toolchain)
