Sigh - Will you ever stop reiterating this FUD?

All properly packaged "single-targeted" autoconf/automake based packages
do support cross-compilation, OTB.

Few packages do support mixed native/cross compilation and even less do
support multi-target configurations.

Yes, because many packagers don't test it and because rpm doesn't
support it.
