If you have a PowerPC running gcc and want to compile a newer
version of gcc, then you don't need to do anything special.
If you want to use the PowerPC cross-compiler to build a
PowerPC native compiler, then your 'build' machine is say
an x86, your 'host' machine is a PowerPC, and your 'target'
is a PowerPC.
p10 of The definitive guide to GCC, Wall and von Hagen call
this a crossed native compile.
