__General cross-compiler__

A complete cross-compile system can be setup easily. For example:

    $ cd binutils-2.18
    $ ./configure --target=mips-netbsdelf
    $ make&& make install
    $ cd ../pcc
    $ ./configure --target=mips-netbsdelf
    $ make&& make install

The compiler from the above example is called /usr/local/bin/mips-netbsdelf-pcc.

Copying the header files from the target machine into /usr/local/mips-netbsdelf/include and the libraries into /usr/local/mips-netbsdelf/lib is sufficient to build binaries.

It's possible for multiple cross-compilers to exist on the host system at the same time (which was the motivation for doing this!).

__Cross-compiler to Microsoft Windows__

To develop a cross-compile system for Microsoft Windows:

    $ cd binutils-2.18
    $ ./configure --target=i386-pe
    $ make&& make install
    $ cd ../pcc
    $ ./configure --target=i386-pc-windows
    $ make&& make install

You'll want to copy the include files and libraries from the [Microsoft Platform SDK](http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=0BAF2B35-C656-4969-ACE8-E4C0C0716ADB&displaylang=en).
