If you are going to work on X, I am willing to lend a hand to make it 
for you :) (in simpler cases I tend to think that cross compilation is
not worth the trouble)

It makes a cheap but effective cross compiler for you.
Check alpha.gnu.org/gnu/hurd/ghhk/make-cross or the Debian
source package of the same name at
(I believe it is "devel" for the *, but I am not sure)

If you use Debian, definitely use the source package. But even if not,
it can be instructive to look at it to understand how it works.
