Hi Chris,

I've tried all possible work-a-rounds I could find on the web (even the
ones described on your site). 
NONE of them seemed to work (for me).

So I've ended up with patching make, this did work.

Thanks for the responses). 

Regards Noel

I'm sorry I can't necessarily answer your specific cross-compliation
questions, but it may help to know that WebKitGTK+ does successfully
compile for ARM and is used in the Sugar Browse Activity on the
ARM-based XO-1.75 and XO-4 OLPC laptops and can be found as a package in
the Fedora repos.


Off hand, I cannot confirm that this was done with cross-compliling.
