It sounds like you want something slightly different, a target env setup
on your host. In a limited sense (ARM only) OpenBossa folks have done

Depends on your build box :) I've been playing with PARALLEL_MAKE and
BB_NUMBER_THREADS and on a dual dual core box (2 dual core
processors) -j 4 / 4 gives me my SDK targets (Linux and MinGW) in under
2 hours. I'm still tweaking the numbers however to see if I can get it
down to 90min.
Tangentally, packaged staging _can_ help here, but it's not I believe,
relocatible (unless you assume-provided some -native packages and
possibly we've fixed what we're doing wrong with gcc configure args).
IOW, if you build in, /OE/tmp you can't re-use the packaged staging
packages in /home/me/OE/tmp
