A lot of things aren't "normal behaviour", including cross-compiling in
general. This is not a valid reason to dismiss my report. What's more, in my
case, a "different set of build tools" is completely unnecessary. You would be
using the *exact same tools* as in the non-cross-compile case.

libtool pretty much supports this already (e.g. it detects whether to create
shared libraries independently from the CPU variant) - it's only the NM macro
which is screwing things up for me, and this is easily fixable.

Please explain why my suggestion is a bad idea. It's not hard to apply a 1-line
