Most build systems supporting cross-compile works like:

./configure --target=powerpc-distro-linux --build=i686-distro-linux

or so.

And then powerpc-distro-linux-gcc (etc.) will be used for compiling
code, while i686-distro-linux-gcc will be used for for some rare code

gcc -o foo foo.c; ./foo > generated.h

or similar.

Replace -distro-linux with your favourite CHOST. :-)
