OK, I'm probably missing something major. Let's say you've got a really
nice shiny Athlon 64 4000+. You want to get LFS onto some old Sparc box
you happen to have lying around. Once you've cross-compiled the
compiler in temp-tools using your AMD64, it'll have compiled binaries
targeted for the Sparc processor. Now, how is your AMD64 going to
execute those Sparc instructions?
