yes. I am aware of that one. I've seen in used in terms of running tests in icu. I had to switch it off for the cross-compile of icu. when configured with --host, icu requires a native build to be specified and it runs the tests as part of the native build.

These projects appear to be designed to cross-compile you just have to pass the right options in. muniversal builds one architecture at a time...which is exactly what is needed for the configure scripts to work right on cross-compiling.
