Well, since I haven't done it yet, I'd have to guess. First of all,
there are two ways to build, with or without the debian/rules makefile.
With it, a native build looks like:
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
and from comments in an unrelated message, I gather a cross-build would
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us -ahurd-i386
but I don't know if that takes care of everything for you. That is, do
you also need to set some env such as CC=i386-gnu-gcc or MIG=i386-gnu-mig?
You'd have to try it or read the dpkg-buildpackage script. This would
build a debian package for you (two actually, hurd and hurd-dev).
Without the debian/rules makefile, I haven't done that with hurd, but
for gnumach it looks like (my own configuration):
mkdir build; cd build # to build in a separate subdir
MIG=i386-gnu-mig CC=i386-gnu-gcc ../configure \
Comparing that to what you said you were doing earlier in the thread,
and assuming that cross-building hurd is very similar to cross-building
gnumach, the differences I see are:
- you may not need LD=
- you may need MIG=
- one or both of --build and --host may be wrong or superfluous
- [ --target ] i386-pc-gnu should be added
Also, for cross-compiling gnumach, you need gcc-i386-gnu, mig-i386-gnu,
and dpkg-cross (maybe only if you use dpkg-buildpackage). You may want
to make sure they're all there. This method would not build a debian
package for you, you'll have to work outside the package manager.
Take your pick, try a few combinations and you should hit on one that
