It does, I even asked the meson devs to be sure. find_program() respects the crossfile, unless `native: true` is added . > > I know meson needs special configuration file for cross compilation - > one example where nm has prefix. > Yet the manual  does not say anything about nm. I cannot find any > instances of nm in the docs all together :-\ There's nothing special about `nm` here, it's just a program that can be set via the crossfile, like `cc` or `ar`. I guess the documentation on the cross-compilation page  could be improved to make the behaviour of find_program() more explicit; care to send a patch? :) > > If Meson does not handle it currently, please open a bug and add a > comment with the bug number/link. > > Thanks > Emil >  http://mesonbuild.com/Cross-compilation.html  http://mesonbuild.com/Reference-manual.html#find_program _______________________________________________ dri-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/dri-devel
