[Patch] Android cross compile support

Nathan Hüsken
Hey,

Appened is a patch that enables cross compilation to android.
For the patch to work, config.guess and config.sub have to be updated to
a newer version so that they recognize linux-android.

For the libraries some additional patches are needed, I will send them
also to this list.

Will this patch be applied to ghc HEAD?

Regards,
Nathan

[Patch] Android cross compile support

Looks fine to me; do we have people who are going to keep an eye on
Android and make sure things don't break?

[Patch] Android cross compile support

Well, I would check it out from time to time and see if it still works.
I would think that when ghc supports android more people would be
interested in using it and there will regularly be someone building it
and trying it out. But I do not know if that will happen.

[Patch] Android cross compile support

Karel Gardas

Hi,

it should not be that hard to install android on one of my 2 arm boards.
The problem is that for Android you need to cross compile and I'm not
sure if current GHC testsuite supports some kind of remote testing on
the target board at all. I've not seen such support there yet.
