Take a look at scratchbox ( for a rapid cross

Actually, i have tried that before, but i accidently crash my root path.... a nightmare....
if there is another way out i will choose that rather than this

I fail to cross compile latest glib 2.6 and also 2.0 with

Check which CC is used in building. I suppose you will find
gcc is used instead of arm-linux-gcc. I think both of --host
and --build options are required to teach ./configure to work
for cross building. If you use --host only, ./configure simply
misunderstands "i am in arm-linux".

--build option is guessed correctly and it is recognized as cross
compiling, but it seem that glib can not accept cross compile.

In addition to, using "--prefix=/usr/local/arm/3.4.1/arm-linux"
is not recommended, because the built binaries will lookup
files (shared libraries, configuration files, messsage catalogues,
etc etc) from /usr/local/arm/3.4.1/arm-linux on your target system.

 Also try to fake configure, but it fail to run glib-genmarshal which
can not excute in i386.
    make CC=arm-linux-gcc LD=arm-linux-ld

When you execute ./configure, the environment is configured
to build on your host. It's too late to teach CC and LD.

It is the only way out for me.
