Eli can probably answer this much better than I. For Emacs-26, there is
unexec functionality which is going to be platform specific, although I
presume that problem goes away with the portable dumper which is (I
guess) portable.

After that, the basic problem is that Emacs is build using Emacs; first
temacs, then bootstrap-emacs. So, you have to be able to run Emacs on
the platform that you are building it on, which conflicts with the idea
of cross compliation.
