What you say supports the theory that build-tools is the answer; however
build-tools seems to want to do an in-place build - not to install the
tool(s) somewhere into the path like cross-tools. I'm in trouble with
cross-tools because libraries are not available :-(.

OK - I'll try again fro build-tools.
