The minimal documentation on cross-compile, and links to the scripts I
used to bootstrap arm from x86_64 are at:

However, this is some years ago, and the scripts as such probably do
not work. I was earlier trying to do bootstrap of arm7 (armv7+ w/
thumb2) build, and already fixed few things. However, I have not yet
completed this work, so there's probably little more to fix.

The scripts should give a rough idea on how it's done.
