This is a little contrived, but the general point is to identify code which relies on undefined behaviour and only works on Linux by luck rather than design.
Cross-compiling per se will do very little to help with that. You'd actually have to test running the code on your targets, at which point you might as well run a native toolchain so as to get even more diversity.
