Well, I don't see a reason to build it for the target (host) platform
when cross-compiling.  yat2m is a tool which is used to build software
so when you are cross-compiling it should have been installed.

We already have or will soon have other developments tools in
libgpg-error as well.  For example the gitlog-to-changelog which will
eventually be moved from gnupg to libgpg-error.

Is there a real need to cross-build development tools?
