Darn.  I guess we can't win them all...  :-(

At least it's only a "development release".  We don't promise that there
won't be regression, at the moment.

Generally speaking, we just need to select a default for the
cross-compiling cases (maybe the default can be configurable).

Most people dealing with cross-compiling tend to have to deal with these
types of issues alot anyways, so they'll survive.  :-)

I almost finished off my regression testing "reporting system" this
weekend.  I think I'm about 80% done - I mostly just have work left on
some of the web UI and interface issues.  Unfortunately, I came up few
hours short, so it won't be ready this weekend.  Maybe next weekend, or
during the week if I get lucky.

With the "reporting system", I plan to periodically test cross compiling
to several different targets in several different configurations, so at
least we will know when we break the cross-compiling support in the future.
