No, unfortunately, it does not work: half libraries target ($HOST)/lib64
installation directory and the other half, target ($HOST)/lib install
dir, because "lib" is generally hardcoded in rules.mak
So, at link time, many libraries are not found, and the generation
process stops. I'll have a closer look at this issue and will report it
to you.
