Configuring ld linker to generate ELF files on Windows for cross compilation to linux 32 & 64bit

Hi guys,

I'm trying to set up a cross compilation toolchain targeting linux 32bit and 64bit from windows 7 using clang and ld. I have clang compiling the object files for the linux target just fine but I'm not sure about how to set up the ld build so that it can link to ELF. If I take the object files generated by clang over to linux I can successfully link them but on windows ld gives me a message "invalid file format". Building binutils from mingw I tried:

$ configure --target=x86_64-pc-linux

And various other targets but none of them seemed to do the trick. Using objdump -i I can see my version of ld supports:

pe-i386 pei-i386 elf32-i386 elf32-little elf32-big plugin srec i386 pe-i386 pei-i386 elf32-i386 elf32-little elf32-big ------ srec plugin ------- -------- ---------- elf32-little elf32-big ------ srec

While the one on linux has:

elf64-x86-64 elf32-i386 elf32-x86-64 a.out-i386-linux pei-i386 i386 elf64-x86-64 elf32-i386 elf32-x86-64 a.out-i386-linux pei-i386

               pei-x86-64 elf64-l1om elf64-k1om elf64-little elf64-big
          i386 pei-x86-64 ---------- ---------- elf64-little elf64-big
          l1om ---------- elf64-l1om ---------- elf64-little elf64-big
          k1om ---------- ---------- elf64-k1om elf64-little elf64-big
        plugin ---------- ---------- ---------- elf64-little elf64-big

elf32-little elf32-big pe-x86-64 pe-i386 plugin srec symbolsrec i386 elf32-little elf32-big pe-x86-64 pe-i386 ------ srec symbolsrec l1om elf32-little elf32-big --------- ------- ------ srec symbolsrec k1om elf32-little elf32-big --------- ------- ------ srec symbolsrec plugin elf32-little elf32-big --------- ------- ------ srec symbolsrec

How do I go about setting this up correctly? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks very much,
