    crossgcc: Improve compatibility of the toolchain across host systems
    crossgcc builds gmp, whose build system normally optimises for the hardware
    it's built on. That may give a minor performance boost but has the downside
    that the compiler becomes non-portable and may break on other systems due to
    illegal instructions.
    Setting CFLAGS to some reasonable value prevents gmp's configure script from
    choosing CPU specific -mtune flags (which may enable optimizations that only
    run on CPUs with the same feature set).
    Enabling "fat" builds make the build system add all optimized assembler
    routines and makes the selection of the right one a runtime decision instead
    of deciding at compile time.
