Well, the tools you want were already built, for the target host.
But you might not be able to install and run them (they may require
a new syscall, some new shared libraries, etc.). The tools that
you intend to run on host "I" during the install should either be
compiled on this host (using its libraries, preferably statically
linked), or on a compatible host in a compatible build environment.
So it all depends on how similar the hosts "B" and "I" and their
build environments are.
