Yes, but its nice to be able to override that behavior for
cross compiling. Linus seems to assume people want to compile
the kernel on the same type of box as the kernel will be running
on; this is sometimes a pain in the butt.

Eric: teaching ones grandmother to suck eggs is rather extreme;
my reference to lex and yacc had more to do with the fact you aren't
as familiar with the mores and society of the kernel group as you could
be; if you were you would have known what a storm of protest the use
of python would have raised, which using lex and yacc would have
avoided almost altogether.

It isn't true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't
really understand it till it makes you cry.
