in my opinion a cross compile setup like http://trac.cross-lfs.org/
would be the appropriate way to go. Compiling could than take place on a faster PC.
The problem with this approach is that many configure scripts etc. of applications are written with only the x86 platform in mind and need to be fixed by experts.
Not with Scratchbox2, they don't...
This tool was originally developed for the Maemo project by the community and Nokia. It insulates the scripts from the host, such that when compiling, even though it's using a cross compiler, it thinks it's compiling on the target machine.
Nokia's still using it (apparently they're still doing Linux after all...), TI uses it, others use it.
