Well, right now I don't think it'll work correctly on a native
compiler.  I haven't tested it; I think the new bits will but some of
Alex's earlier bits won't, since neither of us was really designing for
that case.  The theory says you would set sysroot to "".  It is
prepended to things like STANDARD_INCLUDE_DIR, LOCAL_INCLUDE_DIR,
-rpath-link /lib, etc.
