Yes it is. I designed the current contrib system. I think I know that
design limitation. It might or might not be possible to extend it to
support build-tools in a clean fashion. But it has not been done (and this
patch does not fix that).

Not true.

Not by me and it most probably has bugs there.

Only for host -not build- and not actually used.

And we also need autoconf, automake, awk, binutils, bzip2, gcc, gzip, g++,
libtool, make, perl, pkg-config, python, sed, tar, xcb-proto, xz and a
shell. So what?
