As a newcomer to this list I have a basic question to ask.  I have been
given the unfortunate task of trying to get the libxml2 and libxslt
libraries to compile and link for Nokia's IPSO operating system, which
is an offshoot of FreeBSD 2.2.6.  Also, I am cross-compiling (I'm
running on a FreeBSD 4.6 system), so I need to be able to override the
default gcc compiler, paths, options (like using aout instead of elf
object files), etc...   Does anyone who has successfully compiled the
libraries for FreeBSD have any recommendations/pointers?  Basically, how
do you tell the configure script how to NOT use gcc, override the object
format, etc... ?  I've tried various things so far, but to no avail.
Thanks so much for any and all advice.

 what about configure --help ?

  Book "GNU Autoconf, Automake and Libtool" New Riders ISBN 1-57870-190-2
has its last (short) chapter dedicated to cross-compilation using the
GNU tools. Building and using GNU cross-compilation tools wasn't that
easy first time I tried in 92, but this has been quite easy since...
