I've spent a bit of time during the past 7 years trying to figure out
how to simplify things by avoiding cross-compiling. This page has many
of the details:
I think there is a way to simplify cross-compiling. Levinux is a small
(~20 MB) QEMU download for x86 PCs (Windows, OS X, Linux) that provides
a small Tiny Core Linux VM. I'd like to see something similar but with
all the files and tools needed to pull the latest source code and
cross-compile FPC (also with Debian instead of Tiny Core?).
It seems to me that such a small VM should allow a nice standard method
that will make it easy to test and see things work.
I look forward to your thoughts and comments!
