If that 2.7.1 was just bootstrapped using the same SVN starting with

That's the only reason why OVERRIDE..  exists.

1. bootstrap native 2.7.1 from 2.6.2, then 
2. use that to bootstrap something cross-arch that 2.6.x doesn't support. 

But do both stages _every_ time (svn update)

Anything that builds 2.7.1 with an older 2.7.1 is not supported. If you're
unlucky a single revision can cause problems.
