You shoudl be able to do a toolchain TARGET_ARCH=armv6 to build a cross build environment, and then you can run make buildenv to launch a shell to build socat in this environment... I've done it this way in the past, though I forget if it needs a complete buildworld to work, or if toolchain is enough.. There also appears to be the xdev-build and xdev-install which I think install them into the current environment which you can use... Though I'm not sure if the libraries and other things are built as I've only used it once a long time ago.. Hope this helps. -- John-Mark Gurney Voice: +1 415 225 5579 "All that I will do, has been done, All that I have, has not." _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
