which isn't to say that we don't make extensive use of cross-compiling
in development.  i think all of our dev kernels are cross-compiled,
and probably most of us use cross-tools wherever we can, if only to
avoid the jump to a different build machine.  coming from the embedded
world (even embedded linux), where cross-development is a way of life,
i was surprised how reliant distro development is on native builds.
