What he us saying is that most likely if you are going the route of
booting into the temporary cross-tools build, then you are building for
a different architecture. As such, if I am building for sparc on an x86,
I can't just "reboot". It's more like tar, transfer, untar, boot. Reboot
implies you can actually reboot the machine you just built the
cross-tools on and continue on.
