Did you look into how hard it would be to cross-compile it?  Sounds
better than some sort of build hackery, particularly for users who
might want to build the whole thing from source themselves.  Fedora
contains (multiple) cross-compilers so there is precedent for this.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
