Instead, you should fix OOB so it works to cross-compile.  We at
Cygnus spent years making the GNU tools able to cross-compile, and it
all works.  We built a big test infrastructure and made sure that the
resulting executables were bit-for-bit identical no matter what the
build host was.  It's just your builder script that's unable to
do it -- and that is under your control.
