Which host/target combinations work(ish) for cross-compiling?

It looks like the MDN page[1] is years out of date and there don't appear to be
any docs on cross-compiling on firefox-source-docs[2]. Would anyone in the know
care to remedy that? :)

If you care about Linux -> Windows, https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Build_Instructions/Cross_Compile_Mozilla_for_Mingw32 is minimal, and difficult, but should be up to date.
