While I agree with all the above, I would very much like to be able to
compile GTA04 binaries on my x86_64 multi-core notebook.  I can do it easily
for the kernel, but that is made much easier by the lack of external
dependencies - no libraries to link with.

I tried once - having a Debian/arm distro in a directory somewhere and
setting up all the various paths, but I couldn't make it work.

Does anyone know how to do this?

(most of my user-space code is python which doesn't need compiling, but a few
bits are C and I would *really* like to be able to "make install" and it
would build arm version and scp them over.)
