I've never tried using it with a cross-compiler, so I can't say for
certain.  But it does provide an easy way to build inside a chroot
jail (even as a non-root user), and it also inserts /usr/build/bin at
the front of its $PATH, a feature I've used to wrap gcc in distcc
and/or ccache.  A similar technique could easily be used to drive a
cross-compile.
