This depends on your taste basically. If you want 'clean' build w/o
stupid errors, you should define CROSS_COMPILE and other macros to be
used diring cross compilation. After that, X understands there are
hostcompiler and crosscompiler. Then, makedepend & Co are compiled by
hostcompiler and X server itself are compiler by cross compiler. In
principle, you may safely ignore all that stuff and be ready to build
makedep & Co manually.
