It refers to all builds except the various debian ones. Which is  
clearly the only thing that could be compiled "natively" on a Debian/ 
Linux system.

For Ubunutu (Redhat, Fedora, SuSE, ...) builds, one could likely use a  
chroot environment, but setting those up correctly cross-platform is a  
major PITA and thus we avoided that so far. Truth is, most cross  
compilers come as nice bundles and with good instructions and are thus  
relatively easy to setup, *plus* we already have experts for most of  
them around (our porters). This is quite different for chroot-based  
Linux distro builds -- I would guess that none of our packagers uses  
such an environment ...

Anyway, help setting up "build environments" (whether toolchains,  
chroot environments or whatever else) is welcome.
