How is it possible for the host and target compilers to have the same
file name ?

I'm not sure what you mean by "we pack the HOST variables".

Note: I do understand that the patch will ensure that the compiler
point by $(HOSTCC) will be used, instead of whatever default the
libxml-parser-perl build system thinks it should use. But your commit
log is very confusing.

Also, your Signed-off-by is missing.

Could you resend, with a clarified explanation, and your SoB added ?
