I'm a big fan of cross compilation, but introducing it into Fedora in order
to support ARM seems unlikely to succeed for too many reasons to go into.
The reasons are? ....
Let's figure out how to make native compilation work *better*,
how to make
koji work *better* when more architectures are involved than just x86.
The hardware is way slower ... so we can just build on faster hardware
(x86_64). Which is the only sane way to do it.
Trying to build on ARM directly is kind of a gimmick but nothing one
can seriously use to build a whole operating system. (Yes it works but
it is way to slow).
