We're getting slightly closer but it's not even nearly there yet.

You might have read about the changes in the native code generator
towards building all backends on each platform. However there are a lot
of other changes needed especially in the build system to make a full
cross-compiler. I know some people have worked on this for ARM but
there's nothing integrated yet.
