digitalmars.D.announce - GDC cross compiler documentation / tutorial

I wrote some documentation on how to build a gdc cross-compiler:
http://gdcproject.org/wiki/Cross%20Compiler

For now there's only a tutorial describing how to use crosstool-NG with
gdc, but crosstool-NG already supports many different configurations:
http://gdcproject.org/wiki/Cross%20Compiler/crosstool-NG

crosstool-NG allows to build cross compilers for these architectures:
Alpha, ARM, AVR32, Blackfin, MIPS, OpenRISC/or32(+), PowerPC, s390,
SPARC, SuperH, x86

Supported C libraries: uclibc, eglibc, glibc, mingw, newlib

Supported OS: linux, windows, bare-metal

Some configurations probably won't work with gdc right now,
windows/mingw builds probably need additional patches to be usable.

crosstool-NG also allows to build canadian-cross compilers, where the
build machine != host machine != target machine.
For example this allows to build a cross compiler on Linux/x86-64 which
runs on Windows/x86 and compiles code for Linux/ARM.

No support for Mac OS X? The compilers on Mac OS X are cross-compilers out of the box. -- /Jacob Carlborg

 AFAICS you can use crosstool-NG on OSX to generate cross compilers
 which run on OSX and compile for other OS, but you can't create a cross

Ok, I see. I was mostly thinking of compiling both 32 and 64bit or compiling for ARM. -- /Jacob Carlborg
