Not surprisingly, when cross compiling, you also need python and
pygobject in the other architecture.

That makes it rather cumbersome.

As I wrote in the other email, you can pre-generate those files
another host, during make dist and then build from source-

Thanks Thomas.

Just to clarify Thomas: I can pre-generate on any other host? i.e.
even different architecture...?



Optimally, you choose the same configure options (beside --enable-gtk-
doc), because the man pages list default values that depend on them.

Noted - not tooooo critical a drawback at the moment.

So as to avoid the hazards of taking too many steps in one go, I'm thinking to first 'move up a version' from 
1.4.4 by using the 1.6.2 tarball. 
Just to explain my general aims: I'd ideally like to be even more up-to-date (e.g. tracking 1.8 master) but, 
given the cross-compile issues I have, maybe I need to defer that goal until there's a 1.8.x tarball
So if I can get going with 1.6.2 tarball then I'm a) slightly more up-to-date [I'll just have to watch out 
for patches that I need - not ideal, but ok]; and b) closer to being ready to jump on a 1.8.x tarball when it 
Does that sound reasonably sensible..?
