Alfreed, you already knew the answer to this question, I have compiled glibc
and the Hurd natively quite often (especially the Hurd).

I don't have to waste any time to do this while I'm sleeping.  For
cross-compiling I have to do stuff like setting it up, etc. It isn't
as reliable as native compiling.
