I haven't tried this before myself. But you may need to set the -- 
build, --host, and --target flags to their appropriate values. You can  
run "config.guess" to see an example of what some of those values  
should be. As for the values for the target machine, I'm not sure how  
to get those. Check config.guess again to see what it does.
