Is there anybody out there working with platforms requiring
cross-compilation, like the many embedded/realtime operating systems?

I would like to get the recently added cross-compilation support of
the Perl build process to be much more robust, so far it has been
tested in only one (1) platform, a Linux cross-compiling to another
Linux...  To get it to be more robust, much more testing is needed.
(The current scheme requires the host system to run a UNIXish
environment, since we still use Configure, and it does not get
further than building miniperl, but that's a start.)

In case you are interested, the recently added cross-compilation scheme
is detailed in the INSTALL file of the developer release of Perl,
5.7.2, http://www.cpan.org/src/perl-5.7.2.tar.gz, or in the
developer snapshots, ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/languages/perl/snap/)

("Unfortunately" one of the most popular embedded platforms, QNX,
 Neutrino seems to have a good enough development platform so that
 the latest development releases of Perl seem to build and test just
 fine without any extra acrobatics...)
