While cross-compilation is something good to have, we don't 
consider it to be a "must-have" feature.  And if added, we would 
like it to be done a) with minimal intrusion, and b) properly.  I 
don't think that some-gcc-only non-portable changes are welcomed, 
especially if result requires manual editing.  (Cross-compilation 
was actually discussed several times here, and I think it should 
be done by adding some ability to supply pre-computed results for 
tests which require running.)

Not really.
In last 365 days, only 25 changesets touched auto/:

$ hg log --date -365 auto/ | grep 'changeset:' | wc -l
