Isn't that easy, you'll have to do a bunch of fixups after doing so to 
have things actually work.  Also automagic fetching of packages 
(including dependencies) would be nice.  Upgrading them even nicer.

Creating a script (or yum plugin?) doing all that is probably *much* 
less work than creating tons of extra packages for userspace cross builds.
