[crosstool-ng] Small question and mini-patch

Hi!

First I must pay my respects.  Thank you so much for crosstool (Dan) and
thanks for crosstool-ng (Yann) -- totally awsome tool!

Now, the question.  Is it just me or does anyone else find a cross-ldd
tool to be useful for the host?  

A mini-doc-patch for sstrip.in is attached.  It simply adds a bit to the
explanation of the differences between the elfkickers and buildroot 
versions.  I.e., the latter supports big-endian systems.

Regards
