I described in little article step-by-step example of some classic
technique cross-compilation and building application, which is
implemented one-to-one in the universal script

In addition, I provided standard ports/package arm-binutils and arm-gcc
for OS freebsd (people can use as template for other target boards),
with version of utils & patches from the rockbox project.

The goal and result of cross-compilation - the running application on
target device with devel package in freebsd operational system and (!)
some understanding of assembly methodology.
It may help attract some people to develop and test the code project.

Who am I misled? :)
Maybe I do not understand something.
