I don't know about Zach, but what I want from the tool is indeed for it to produce self-contained, relocatable toolchains, whether they are cross- or native. Non-sysrooted toolchains are not very interesting to me: they have value when you are building a distribution, but less so when you are building entirely independently from the existing distribution, which is often the case with musl on glibc-based distros. Also, a sysrooted toolchain is perfectly usable as the system toolchain - it just requires a couple symbolic links. I 100% support fixing mcm and avoiding the need to patch the produced toolchains, but please don't change its semantics. Relocatability and self-containedness are where it's at. -- Laurent
