clarifying /tools versus /cross-tools

  before i get into this too deeply, i want to clarify one important
point.  as i read it, /cross-tools is the eventual destination for the
entire cross-compiling toolchain, including *all* supporting binaries,
libraries and so on.  effectively, it's a standalone cross-compiling
environment.

  /tools, on the other hand, is simply a temporary location for stuff
during the construction of that toolchain.  once the construction is
over, the /tools directory is unnecessary and can be deleted, right?
