Hello again,

I have reached the next obstacle in my attempt to cross-compile to Debian armeb from my Debian x86 PC: I need a libtool.

I'm not sure whether I need a way to make the libtool that I already have on my build machine know about cross-compiling, or whether I need a separate target-specific version. I tried the former approach:

$ libtool --mode=compile armeb-linux-g++  -Wall -O -o foo.lo -c foo.cc
libtool: compile: unable to infer tagged configuration
libtool: compile: specify a tag with `--tag'

Hmm, --tag is not mentioned in the libtool documentation as far as I can see.

On the other hand, I can't see a way to build a libtool for cross-compilation; it's configure options include --build and --host, but not --target which I think is what I would need [though I am easily confused by the difference between cross-compiling libtool and building a libtool to use for cross-compiling...].

Can anyone point me in the right direction? The only mentions of cross-compiling and libtool that I can find on the web are in the context of automake, which I'm not using in this case.

Many thanks.
