It's a cross-toolchain. Using a directory like this is the established
practice for GNU cross-toolchains (and also used by some other
cross-toolchains) and the consensus among Fedora packagers working on
cross-compilation is that this is the way to go. Unfortunately, the
guideline which was supposed to formally codify it never made it to an FPC
vote because of process issues.
