In the ebuild in dev-embedded/msp430-gcc is the following line:
is_crosscompile || die "Only cross-compile builds are supported"
I'm not sure exactly what it means, but it seems to mean that this
ebuild can only be used when cross-compiling, i.e. when building gcc to
_run_ on the msp430.
I want to build a cross-compiler, i.e. a gcc that will run on my x86_64
and create code to run on the msp430.
