Overview

In most cases of cross-compiling from one platform to another you need cross binutils, i.e. assembler, linker, and so on.

Building your own binutils

If they are not readily available for your combination of host and target platform, you can compile them from the sources from their home page (http://www.gnu.org/software/binutils/).

This is a quite typical configure for the binutils, in particular useful together with fpc:

./configure \
--target=arm-linux \
--prefix=/usr/local/lib/arm-linux \
--bindir=/usr/local/bin --mandir=/usr/local/share/man --infodir=/usr/local/share/info \
--program-prefix=arm-linux \
--disable-werror

for Unix/Linux-like targets, the options target and prefix are fairly straight forward, but not for others.

List of options:

Win CE (Intel) i386-wince i386-wince
