Description:In the current main Makefile, there is already the possibility to cross compile, and various architectures are supported, but not the mips.
I work on a VoIP board project for Sigma Designs, and our chip is a mips. Currently we compile natively on the board, which is painful. It would be great to have mips cross-compiling enabled.

I doubt the core development team has the hardware to do proper testing ... Are you able to provide a patch (which will have to be against trunk)?

Well, yes, I could spend some time on it, and file you a patch.

thanks ywalther: I will mark this feedback until you are ready. Please note, like I said in the other of your bugs, you will need to file a disclaimer on file with digium to allow the patch to be incorporated into trunk. Thanks!

ywalther: any progress here?

I already have a patch for mips cross-compiling against a normal libc. However, it would be great if this could be compiled against a uclibc...
Anyway, I'll prepare the patch for libc.

I tested the new build process on trunk, and the autoconf is ok now for mips cross-compiling, even against an uclibc.
This bug can so be closed.
