The idea and implementation looks mostly good to me. Few comments:

- Ideally, the native build would be done first (as it is done now) and
  the cross-compiler build is done later (filter out the native ctarget)

- This affects produced .apk files. The other abuild actions should be
  updated too e.g. cleanpkg, cleanoldpkg and listpkg.

- I'm thinking if the list of cross-targets should be per-package
  instead of per-git repository. I think this list is mostly needed for
  binutils+gcc (as clang supports all targets from single build).
  Though I think there's arguments also for keeping it in repository.

- How about the cross-compilers that target non-alpine setup like AVR
  (community/gcc-avr) or bare-metal arm (we had patches to
  testing/gcc-arm-embedded which are maybe not merged)?
