RE: Request for build information

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I will try both a native build and a cross-compile build and let you
know how it goes. I was curious to know if anyone does a cross-compile
build since I did not see a README.cross or much mentioned on other
Debian web pages about cross-compiling glibc.

Once again thanks for the pointers.

The glibc source package is transferred to a bonafide mipsel machine, on
which the equivalent of the following line is run:
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -B

(You'll need to install the dpkg-dev and build-essential packages to
 accomplish this).

Since you want to cross-compile, you may want to install the dpkg-cross
package and use that.  If it happens that the source package is not
clean for a cross build that way, give a shout so we can fix it.
