  Yes, you can build a cross-targeted compiler and should at least get sane
results for e.g. the compile tests, only the execute tests actually require a
real target.

  You could always compile "int main() { abort (); }" and supply it as a
stand-in for a real simulator if there's a hole in the framework needs
plugging :-)

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
