I cannot find the cross-compile howto anymore, but anyway. Please feel
free to add this to the wiki (i won't do it).
A cross-compiler can be used to build binaries for an architecture other
than the compile-hosts arch. For [[http://gcc.gnu.org][GCC]] there is
[[http://kegel.com/crosstool/][crosstool]] which can be used to
bootstrap your cross-compiler.
add short description on bootstrapping a cross-chain manually here
(binutils, gcc, a libc).
