The whole point of the wiki answer is that doing this is wrong. Adding a "here's a way to do it anyway" rather defeats the purpose and is just going to get us more trouble in the long term. In any case, this only works when dynamic linking is available, and it requires the ability to run programs for the target which breaks cross compiling and therefore violates one of the biggest rules for built scripts.
