Hi Chris,

Your fix made it work, I managed to build all of it to the end. Thanks!

Right, I'm playing with the flags and not getting anywhere. I tried:


I noticed that RT's builtin-config-ix.cmake only has cross options for
Darwin, would that be the reason?

Hum, that sounds like a chicken and egg problem. Maybe some additional
CMake flag to facilitate the cross options of RT's builtin (as we
discussed above) could "assume" the targets directly.

A first implementation would fail later if Clang can't target the arch
you asked (ex. if you removed it from LLVM_TARGETS_TO_BUILD), but an
intersection check on both lists could yield some pre-checks to make
it a cmake error instead.
