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.
