If you prepare chroot environment, you don't expect it to work without
chroot into it first!
You cannot eliminate a cross-compile solution only because you cannot
test it on build machine. All tools work great in doing cross compile
(including libtool), the only missing functionality is for libtool to
create valid chroot environment.

Which file is missing? I don't follow you.

No... DESTDIR just tells to install into other location, without any
change or fixup.

I think you going to differnet place than creating a valid environment
for chroot.
