yes, that works, you can cross build a toolchain with host==target
and then it will be a native toolchain.

(i havent tried it with mcm, but first you build a cross toolchain
and then you should be able to use that to build the native one.)

what i meant was that you can only use that toolchain in a native
musl environment and for most users that's a distro with its own
toolchain (otherwise you have to build busybox etc yourself).
