i dont think there is any documentation on this.  basically, if you want to 
compile code for any port/arch, it has to have headers that implicitly include 
other headers exactly like a port drepper builds for (so like x86/x86_64).  
he's made it clear multiple times on this list when other arches randomly fail 
because x86/x86_64 pull in a bunch of standard headers at random places while 
other ports do not.
