As Jamie said, it's possible to do it. However you need to do define
what type of cross-compile you're interested in; going from one flavor
of x86 to another is not a big deal (see the uname hint for that), but
going from one architecture to a different one is more difficult.
That is one reason I'd like to reduce nALFS' reliance on external
programs for running profiles, but to do a true cross-compile is really
a three-phase process, since you need to build a known good system that
runs on the host before you can build the target system.
