There are many tools for making cross compiler (aboriginal, crosstools-ng, buildroot, etc) but I haven't found one that guides how to move to native compiling (=create the native compilers) once one has the cross-compilers and bootable rootfs (I know, aboriginal *does* create native compilers so I should read Rob's scripts for that ...). That being said, the other topics are pretty relevant too. Also, anyone thinks that CLFS is good start for this? One thing that I notice about (C)LFS is that the steps are there but the rationale and explanation isn't; so it encourages people to follow a recipe without knowing *why* things have to be done in a certain way (to be fair, the main LFS (not its CLFS variants) does have some kind of explanation but it could be improved). cheers!
