1. Did you set up a cross-compiler to build for ARM, and did you test it to make sure it compiles and links?
2. Did you set the CC variable so that the build scripts invoke the cross-compiler?

If you don't set CC, how are the build scripts supposed to guess what compiler to use?

Hi zahidul, i'm currently running into the same problem as yours. Is it possible to let me know, how you solved it previously?
