The answer to the questions is "yes", and "yes - probably".

But if you're talking about the lsbcc build environment, that
depends on the underlying support to be present - can this
normally be done on a gcc/binutils system?  In my experience
cross-compilation support (other than "family" support, like
x86_64 building for ia32, ppc building for ppc64, etc) has
to be set up laboriously by hand, referring to assorted
pages you may or may not locate on the web.

If you're talking about lsb-buildenv, which is the full
environment that we have control over, we might set that up,
but again we're probably not talking out-of-the-box recipes
for constructing gcc and binutils.  It shouldn't be too
hard to get the stub libraries and lsb headers in place,
since we already construct these.
