| The problem is not whether the approach works. There is a broken

| there will be case when it compiles and there will be cases when it
| doesn't.
| It's a purely shell problem. It's not a compiler problem. The testsuite
| forces cross-compiling for and compiler that $CC is set to. I don't want
| to make any workarounds for the compilers not capable of cross-compiling.
| But I do want to fix an endless loop.

Sorry, I still don't understand.  You said the test suite endlessly
looped on some platform.  My question is why on *that* platform the
test suite is stuck.  It is a different issue from:

| This loops on any architecture:

...this, which I wasn't aware of, thanks.

And I can't understand what you mean wrt cross compilation either :(
