Hmm.  That's an interesting suggestion.  I'll try it.

It isn't really a big deal that it's a hack.  The trouble is that I
want to be able to cross compile a large number of packages without
going through the effort to patch and add this function.  IMHO, it
would be helpful to add a switch to mitigate the inherently
conservative behavior.

Still, an environment variable is far better than the other options
I've tried.
