extract-strings. You may need work with it some more for the flags
Builds host version (as static so I don't have to manipulate libs).
Copies extract-strings to a hostbin folder and replaces it with a
Runs configure again for the build.
Removes the extract-strings dependency for generating the header file.
It's not very robust (and certainly not upstream worthy), but does get
through that one stage. Warning, when the cross build runs, it blows
away the wrapper script, but just right after that script is run. Any
shift in the dependencies is likely to break the hack. My build did
not complete since I am using a really old homegrown tool-chain, but I
expect like the codesourcery tools will not have the issue I did (well
after the extract-strings handling).
I did not go into the install/deploy, but I do not expect any issues
with those sections. You can test that out.
Also, the version I found was suffixed with "-pre1", so adjust the
spec file appropriately.

Caught me in a good mood.
