Taking this further I'm trying to cross-compile rockbox for arm on a
debian11 virtual machine. My setup was not smooth but cross-compiling
is confirmed working with a small helloworld-type program, which runs
on my phone.

I got rockbox from git, spent yesterday going
rounds with rockboxdev and with configure but they're now both
working. I've got the generated makefile line from configure. I was
having a make issue but a make clean followed by another make fixed
that. I did make zip and that worked, made a valid zip file. I'm now
stuck on the make apk step, getting the following:

make: *** No rule to make target 'apk'. Stop.

Any ideas?
