That's what I thought.

It built an Intel 80386 binary. This is inside the scratchbox of the 
maemo development vmware image in vmplayer.

The question is, why? I assumed the entire purpose of the dev img was 
that you could compile an ARM binary inside it. If all it can do is 
compile 80386 binaries, I don't see the point of it.

I used cc -o foo foo.c bar.c
Is there some switch I need to specify to force it to cross-compile?
