Something like

Is it really? You already have to use the appropriate compiler and
linker for native vs. target binaries -- why can't you use the
appropriate version of 'strip', too?
rpm magic; final %__spec_install_post makes something like

+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-compress
+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-strip-static-archive arm-iwmmxt-linux-gnueabi-strip
+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-strip-comment-note arm-iwmmxt-linux-gnueabi-strip arm-iwmmxt-linux-gnueabi-objdump

and does not differ between target and native binaries.

Hm, OK. I suppose it doesn't hurt much. Updated patch then...

Has this work/discussion progressed at all? I'm interested in cross tools (x86->ppc) and would
like to get involved in making these happen.

Any pointers on how I can get started (where/how to pick up the current work, etc)?
