                         Cross-Configuration                          Cross-Installation
   
   You need a cross-compilation toolchain for your target including gcc
   (2.0 or later).
   
 A few tests made by the configure script do not work in a  The first step in cross-installation is the cross-configuration.  A
   few tests made by the configure script do not work in a
 cross-compilation situation. You have to provide the results of these  cross-compilation situation. You have to provide the results of these
 tests by hand. E.g., if you compile for a 386 architecture processor:  tests by hand. E.g., if you compile for a 386 architecture processor:
   
 env ac_cv_sizeof_char_p=4 ac_cv_sizeof_short=2 ac_cv_sizeof_int=4 ac_cv_sizeof_long=4 ac_cv_sizeof_long_long=8 ac_cv_c_bigendian=no ./configure  env ac_cv_sizeof_char_p=4 ac_cv_sizeof_char=1 ac_cv_sizeof_short=2 ac_cv_sizeof_int=4 ac_cv_sizeof_long=4 ac_cv_sizeof_long_long=8 ac_cv_sizeof_intptr_t=4 ac_cv_sizeof_int128_t=0 ac_cv_c_bigendian=no ./configure
   
 The ac_cv_sizeof_... variables give the sizes of various C types;  The ac_cv_sizeof_... variables give the sizes of various C types;
 ac_cv_sizeof_char_p is the same as "sizeof(char*)" in C code. The  ac_cv_sizeof_char_p is the same as "sizeof(char*)" in C code. The
 ac_cv_c_bigendian variable gives the byte order.  ac_cv_c_bigendian variable gives the byte order.
   
   After the cross-configuration you type
   
   make gforths
   
   This produces the gforth engines for the target.
   
   The next step is to transfer everything to the target; on the target,
   you do
   
   make
   
   to complete building gforth.  If you do not have a make on the target,
   run
   
   make -n
   
   on the host; manually execute on the target the last command output by
   "make -n" (GFORTHD=...); the other commands output by "make -n" are
   not necessary unless you have changed the Gforth sources.  You can
   then check and benchmark Gforth with
   
   make check
   make bench
   
   or equivalent.  Finally, perform
   
   make install
   
   or the equivalent commands on the target.
