No, sorry.

OK. There is, however, one more thing that I have already mentioned in 
one of the "x86_64 bug" threads. CLFS does not take advantage of the 
fact that in many situations (referred to as "not-really-cross") the 
host can execute target binaries. For such situations, work is underway 
to create a third build method, that switches from cross-compiling to 
the native method after glibc, not after the entire Chapter 5. The aim 
is to future-proof the toolchain against such "compilers incompatible 
with the host glibc or headers" bugs, without losing the above-mentioned 
advantage due to cross-compiling. There are, however, difficulties on 
this way, and there is really nothing to demonstrate yet. Also, CLFS 
should stay for really-cross build scenarios.
