RSB --host and --target option trigger the bset tarball

Deep in the set builder is an old piece of logic to trigger tarballs when in a cross-compile environment. This dates back to cross-compling tool sets.

The adding the kernel and 3rd party packages means the RSB command line can have the --host and --target options and if the kernel and a package like libbsd are on a single command line the --host and --target trigger a tarball install and this breaks the build.


  • Remove the tarball trigger.
  • Check the kernel and packages are not effected. Having both may break a package build if passed automatically to a configure command line.
