Well, for me it doesn't.

I was using:

./configure --target=mipsel-linux --host=mipsel-linux 

to build for a mipsel/uclibc target, with mipsel/uclibc aware toolchain.

# file libraries/liblunicode/ucgendat
libraries/liblunicode/ucgendat: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, MIPS, version 
1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

It's a mipsel binary here (as the toolchain can only build mipsel 
binaries), and it is tried to be executed on a x86 machine during the 
build process, which of course fails.

I don't know, perhaps it's a wontfix, perhaps there is some workaround, 
and if not, maybe it should give a better warning.

Anyway, this type of error (trying to execute a binary for a different 
target) is quite common when cross-compiling.
