I think the short answer is no.  I have some source files in a package
which are built by running a C program, which would be a use case for
$HOSTCC-type functionality.  I use a cross-compiling AM_CONDITIONAL to
disable the rules for updating those generated sources, and I
distribute them.  The result is changes to the sources of the
generated sources must be built in a non-cross-compile environment,
then the up-to-date generated sources can be transported (such as via
make dist, or committing to SCM) to the cross-build environment.
