Wouldn't it anyway be better to make the packaging system cross-compile safe 
and add the logic for creating the crosscompiler into the toolchain 
ebuilds/eclass (or exheres)? Would make it easier IMHO to adapt to special 
requirements for different cross-compilers.

In the end, the user would install sys-devel/i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc or sys-
devel/sparc-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc instead of just sys-devel/gcc and - 
depending on host architecture - should get a native or a cross-compiler.

Each of them could also support its own set of USE flags (or options).
