  Yes. 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.
