We currently cannot run the full testsuite on a binary distribution due to
#13897 (essentially we don't ship a few utilities which the testsuite would
require; Alp is looking at fixing this in Hadrian).

Moreover, we can't run Haddock when cross-compiling which means that we
would need to find a way to skip the haddock performance tests.

However, in general I think it is important that Tier 1 platforms be
tested in a non-cross-compiled environment. Afterall, this is the
environment in which we need to build binary distributions (for the
above-mentioned Haddock issue, among others).
