Cross Architecture Compiling

Hi Alexander,

Yes I've seen that.  The problem with appending CONFIGURE_ARGS is that it 
breaks some ports.  Also by honouring TARGET_ARCH we're staying more inline 
with current cross-build trends.

And as for jails/chroot Garrett,  it might work but it's a pain and can't be 
run along with other ports/builds to create a rootfs automatically.
