-If you want to cross-compile pcc (from a build machine to a different host machine):
+A complete cross compile system can be setup easily. For example:
 
-$ export CC=mips-netbsdelf-pcc
-$ ./configure --host=mips-netbsdelf
+$ 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!).
 
-This will build pcc into a mipsel binary for running on NetBSD.
