The reason I want to cross-compile is that my machine dual boots
HURD/Linux, so when I'm in HURD, I have to deal with the monochrome 80x24
mach terminal, lack of xemacs, my HURD is on an agonizingly slow disk etc,
lots of little frustrations. Thanks for your advice, I'll try it out.
A point of clarification; I plan to use the X binaries so what I'm
actually trying to cross-compile is gnumach and the HURD itself, it seems
the HURD needs a patch to get X working.
