That doesn't matter.  You still need two versions of the compiler.  If
you're cross-building sprac64 on an i386 machine, for instance, you need
an i386 version of the compiler that produces sparc64 binaries *and* a
sparc64 version that produces sparc64 binaries.  The former is used only
during the build, the latter is what will be installed on the target.
