Both are related.  The cross-compiler is part of a generic method to
create a native cross-compiler based on musl.  The same one is used to
create the rest of a gnu/linux distribution based on musl, this belongs
to the development version of Dragora, the work involved in the
(incoming) version 3.

darkcrusade[1] is a simple script to invoke another tool[2] called


Normally, the process occurs in the stage number 0:

Thanks, I am aware of the existence of musl-cross-make.

I've started before in order to learn more about the cross-compilers
and with the goal to have a full toolchain based on musl.  Darkcrusade
is more like a descendent of musl-cross by Gregor Richards.

I don't have the intention to compite with other projects, in this case
with musl-cross-make.  Hope darkcrusade can be a good contribution to
the community.

I know.  I am full dedicated to the project, but the work for the
next version of the distro has me busy (very occupied), I have not yet
taken the time to document everything, including all the details for
the bootstrap method/darkcrusade.
