[HELP] perl cross compiling
Message ID:
Hi all,

the last few days I've tried to cross compile the latest perl release version 
5.8.4 with my self-made uClibc toolchain (target i586-linux-uclibc / gcc 3.3 
/ uclibc 0.9.26). Hm, it seems to be a harder work than I've expected.

Til now I've read some googled web pages and email threads. All together tell 
me I can't cross compile perl -- I have to use the target system to rebuild 
perl. Is it really true? Because the perl source tree includes a path named 
'Cross' and the README in it says it could. Sadly this simple cross-framework 
needs a perl configuration file '' wich includes 
all the setup for my target. I don't know how I can create this file without 
a perl configuration run on my target. Even this is what I can not do 
(embedded system :-).

Now, is there anybody who has experience enough with perl cross compilations 
(maybe for uclibc targets) and can show me a way to go on or give me a hint 
where I can find more informations about (howto, stept-by-step doc, ...) ... 
Any help is welcome.

Thanks and
Best Regards

Stephan Linz
