This reminds me that we should make a list of target milestones and
packages that we want to support.  Some nice targets: Eclipse, xmonad.
distcc surely won't help with Java or Haskell compilation.

OpenWRT, Android, etc have all their packaging work specifically
designed for cross-compilation.  It's not like Arch where everything
assumes native builds on x86.

It's hard.

Or bootstrap from Debian?  (No need on ARM.)
