On the arm device or with a cross compiler correctly configured:
gcc spi.c -o outputFile

Just place the ' spi.c ' in a new empty folder
together with all headers.h .

And if not already done, add these #include lines to spi.c :

.. like this .. the quotes tell : look for the headers in the spi.c directory.

#include "header.h"
#include "header2.h"
#include "header3.h"

.. and then ..
cd new/
gcc spi.c -o main.bin
