Am I correct in thinking this only works on systemd enabled host systems
or if you cross-compile for the same architecture? So you can use the just compiled version of systemctl?

Neither of which is the case for us...
Am I expected to compile systemd twice in that case, one time as part of the host 'toolchain' and a second for the actual target?
I was rather hoping for something portable like a shell or python script.

Best regards,
