Only to test it.. GCC can cross compile just fine.. Under NeXT I feel
secure that it will work.. The only limit I see on linux is that maby some
apps aren't 64bit clean.. Maby the linker also needs to be changed so that
we dont have to have the libs for all platforms we link to.. Maby just a
'map' file would do in their place..

So.. Anyone else want this? :)
