Funny. Rebuilding with crosscompilation toolchain is better approach
or course, but I doubt that it's easy doable for Maemo packages. It
would require changes in big amount of packages.
If you're brave enough you can try it. Just let me know and I will
stop supporting current solution.

Even not considering above you might notice, that Maemo SDK is based
on scratchbox. So, second answer is 'Because Maemo SDK and all
developers use it'.
