Compiling Rockbox (sim or app) on arm hosts should work "out of the box"
with our build system, done so many times on my touchpad. Not so sure
for cross compiling (setting CROSS_COMPILE environment variable to your
cross compiler prefix), but you shouldn't need to cross compile since
you can do it on the pi (with some patience).

Best regards.
