I'm trying to build a GCC cross-compiler, more specifically, I want to
compile on my x86_64-linux-gnu system and execute on Android ARM OS.
I'm following the recipe at
At step 2, from above, I built the Linux kernel headers, using linux-5.3, I
%make ARCH=arm INSTALL_HDR_PATH=/home/me/android-29/arm-android-eabi
Then step 3, built c,c++,fortran compilers using GCC-9.2.0 with:
configure --prefix=/home/me/android-29 --target=arm-android-eabi
%make -j4 all-gcc
All is fine to this point.
Step 4 - Build C library headers and startup files using glib-2.30
***This is the problem area***
I configure with:
**NOTE HERE -- the author of this guide "Preshing" states that GLIBC
"requires" that "build", "host", and "target" must all be specified in the
configure step. He further states that unlike other software packages, for
GLIBC, "both the --host and --target options are meant to describe the
system on which Glibc's libraries will ultimately run on." (Is Preshing
correct on this?) However, when I specify --build=x86_64-linux-gnu
--host=arm-android-eabi and --target=arm-android-eabi in Glibc configure, I
"checking for systems preconfigure fragments... aarch64 alpha arm

I was able to circumvent this error by NOT specifying --host, but only
specifying --build=x86_64-linux-gnu and --target=arm-android-eabi.
However, not sure this is the proper solution here.
**Any ideas here as to whether what I have done here is reasonable?
I then run in my build-glibc directory,
%make install-bootstrap-headers=yes install-headers
This ran ok.
However, the next command creates the error in the subject line:
%make -j4 csu/subdir_lib
This runs for a bit before saying:
../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/x86/include/asm/prctl.h:5:28: fatal error:
asm/prctl.h: No such file or directory #include_next <asm/prctl.h>
I welcome any and all suggestions as to where to go from here regarding
