hi,Hartvig Ekner,
   Here are my files.
   but the build process can't be described in short:(.
   I started from a rpm package from redhat7(or similar standard 
distribution),did
everything to make it cross-compile,very ugly and painful.Basically,
     repeat if errors
       make World &> out,
       read out,correct errors it reports
     until done
   beside changes to config files,i remember there were problems due to the 
sequence
when it cross-builded a problem and wanted to execute it.
  From the list,I think someone else should have more elegant way. And i will 
try
H.J.Lu's source in oss.sgi.com when having time.
