Why not?

But you have to make sure that the needed tool for buildhost is built first.

You need to

  • define the needed tool as a build dependency, and
  • make sure that the tool compiles and installs the host executable. (so that it can be called from Makefile)

Probably something in style of

You could search the source repos for PKG_BUILD_DEPENDS (and HOST_BUILD_DEPENDS) for pointers.
