>> My gut says that this section is prematurely optimizing it out of the build, because it's assumed that the host tool will always be binary compatible with the build tool:
Yes. ctfconvert always needs to be built with the build tree version instead of relying on the host version because using the host version will break if/when the ctf format between the build and host machine changes. Some care might need to be taken with the library dependencies for ctfconvert, but libelf is a relatively simple library from what I remember...
