Yes.  You need the hostcompiler when you do X builds.  It is possible
to get around it though.  I have the commands that I used in two shell
scripts.

First I have to to prepare for the cross build:

#!/bin/sh
make clean
make Makefile.boot
make Makefiles
(cd config; make)
make includes
make depend
(cd fonts/bdf; for i in $(find -name 'Makefile'); do sed -e 
's/\$(XBUILDBINDIR)\///' < $i > $i.tmp; mv $i.tmp $i; done)

Then I'm ready to build the rest with the cross compiler:

#!/bin/sh
export PATH=/usr/glibc-mips/bin:$PATH 
make -k CC=mips-linux-gcc LD=mips-linux-ld AS=mips-linux-as 
RANLIB=mips-linux-ranlib $@

You probably have a better solution though :-)
