uhm..., I'm sorry but I don't understand what you mean.

If you have a package that depends on tcl (it links against libtcl8.6.a,
for instance), then you will need the target tcl (actually the staging
one), which has the right architecture for your target, no? The host tcl
would have the same architecture as the host machine which may not be
the same as the target one.

Am I missing anything?
