I think there are a number of use cases where BR2_REPRODUCIBLE would be
interesting (E.G. we have discussed turning it on by default), but you
do no want to pay the extra build time for building these host

So I'm open to an option to force building all host dependencies, but it
should be keyed from a separate configuration option and not
