Yes. You need the hostcompiler when you do X builds. It is possible
to get around it though. I have the commands that I used in two shell
First I have to to prepare for the cross build:
(cd config; make)
(cd fonts/bdf; for i in $(find -name 'Makefile'); do sed -e
's/\$(XBUILDBINDIR)\///' < $i > $i.tmp; mv $i.tmp $i; done)
Then I'm ready to build the rest with the cross compiler:
make -k CC=mips-linux-gcc LD=mips-linux-ld AS=mips-linux-as
You probably have a better solution though :-)
