Can anyone provide more details on what the cross compiling options
for building really mean?
The --help option for configure provides the following terse
responses relating to cross compiler options:
--build=BUILD configure for building on BUILD [guessed]
--host=HOST cross-compile to build programs to run on HOST [BUILD]
--target=TARGET configure for building compilers for TARGET [HOST]
What are the allowable settings for BUILD, HOST, and TARGET?
What do the bracketed words at the ends of each line mean?
Are there any examples of using these options that might help to
clarify their meaning?
I have searched for documentation on these options without
success. If they are documented somewhere then can someone please
point me to the link.
