Yes, we use elfutils in cross compile env, one works as build host which 
we build all the packages and of course gcc installed on the build host 
and another as target which only deployed the necessary packages which 
we have build on the build host.
And this is the case we just run the test on the target.

I think it make sense to check the gcc and make it skip if the cases 
depends on gcc.
