Alternatively you could install gcc and binutils to a completely different prefix and set OBJFORMAT_PREFIX.  Keep in mind that the crosscompiler needs a different set of headers, so you'll likely need to change the search prefix for the headers in the compiler as well.  All of this is taken care in the build/crossworld.

Sorry to not augment my question properly. I meant when I do a make
buildworld TARGET_ARCH=amd64 with Noah's patches it creates
/usr/obj/blah/blah/ctools_i386_amd64/ directory which contains the
cross build tools. In there usr/libexec/binutils{215,217} contain the
right target tools x86_64. But in the same directory usr/bin/{as} etc.
are built for the i386 target.


Something is wrong up on cloud # 9!
