i know, that most people activate autocompiling with --target flags (or
so). why don't you move the directory with the cross compiler to the
beginning of the path ?
i compiled several programs as libc5 with
and it worked fine. i know, that many packages call ar instead $(AR) and
other stuff, so they will break with other methods. even "gcc" isn't a
problem. the only problems i found so far are :
- "c++" was not in altgcc, i had to add a symlink to "g++"
- configure scripts find X11 libraries in /usr/X11R6/lib
- any auto search in configure sripts will cause trouble.
