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.
