cross compiling a linux application for zlinux using debian

I am new to linux and am attempting to rebuild an existing linux i386
application to run on zlinux by making small modifications to the build
by having it cross compile on a vmware debian linux image.  When an ar
command is run in the build, I am getting an error:

 emulation options: 
  No emulation specific options

What does ar want as syntax for emulation options?

ar elf32-s390 -r ......   does not work

I am executing the "ar" that is part of the s390-linux-gnu/bin so I
assume it knows that it is in cross compilation mode..... but I suppose
ar needs to know whether it is 32 or 64 bit mode...

thank you,
