 I didn't say it wasn't a good practice.  A cross toolchain
can mean many different things.  Since the book doesn't
do what you wanted to achieve, you have adapted it.  No

 People who follow *all* of the book can build the first
part on one machine, then copy /tools to the target
machine, and either boot or chroot to build the final
system.  When copying to the destination machine, the
contents of /cross-tools are *not* needed.  Hope this
clearifies what the trunk book is intended for.

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
