on my ppc host, CROSS_COMPILE is set to "" by default

on my x86/amd64 host, CROSS_COMPILE is set to my target by default 
(bfin-uclinux- in my case)

how does that make sense ?  the logic is "if you are on a ppc host, then 
regardless of your target, use the native ppc compiler"

the logic on x86/amd64 is "if you are on a x86 host, then set the default 
CROSS_COMPILE based upon your target"

why should these two be different ?
