+# Cross-building
+
+The long-term goal is to get `build-many-glibcs.py` to be able to cross-compile
+glibc. This should be working as per the following:
+
+ $ mkdir -p /tmp/build/src
+ $ cp -a /usr/src/glibc /tmp/build/src/
+ $ unset CFLAGS
+ $ /tmp/build/src/glibc/scripts/build-many-glibcs.py /tmp/build checkout binutils-2.29 gcc-7.1.0
+ $ /tmp/build/src/glibc/scripts/build-many-glibcs.py /tmp/build host-libraries
+ $ /tmp/build/src/glibc/scripts/build-many-glibcs.py /tmp/build compilers i686-gnu
+ $ /tmp/build/src/glibc/scripts/build-many-glibcs.py /tmp/build glibcs i686-gnu
+
+Ideally the master branch builds that way. As of January 2018 the goal is first
+to get the sthibaul/hurd-builds branch building.
