It's a kind of jail, but for the toolchain instead of a 
running system: evrything's taken from within the sysroot,
instead of the running system.

Probably the cleanest way of building for an foreign system, 
not just for real crosscompiling.

You're absolutely right. But the damage doesn't come from there, 
and I dont like to engage on another front by trying to repair

Because I didn't see any chance for repairing the original one. 
And because my implementation is just a frontend for an really 
platform independent toolchain command set.
