Something along those lines should be acceptable, I'd think.
I assume you're building from a tarball, and not from Git. If you are
building from Git, then the first step should be to build a tarball
natively, and then start from the tarball. This should simply any
cross-build support we need to add.
make-docfile shouldn't be needed native, as we can distribute its output
as part of the tarball.
For blessmail, we can convert it to a shell script on platforms that
have a shell (which should be the only platforms where cross-building is
an issue.) Blessmail is obsolete anyway - perhaps we should start
installing blessmail only on explicit request - but I digress.
For make-fingerprint, it's not that important and we could make its use
optional. Or we could write a shell script a la blessmail. Or we could
convert it from C to Elisp and integrate it as part of the build
process. Either way, we wouldn't need to build it on the build host.
If we do the above, we wouldn't need to worry so much about native vs
