Short answer: no, though we have done that sort of thing internally (not
Mac on Linux though, and mainly Additions cross-builds). Not much
documentation available for it, especially as we use slightly different
configuration scripts internally, but you might take a look at the page
I put together on cross-building the Solaris Additions on Linux, at
least for a couple of ideas.
