Ian, I'm supposed to do a study for universtity on cross-compiling so I would 
be glad if you leave this up to me! :) This is supposed to do my work and I 
apologize I'm not done yet though I know that it can easily be implemented, 
but I want to do it in the most general way that allows to set up multiple 
environments for compiling at the same time. 

Generally it doesn't require much besides creating a subdirectory as a build 
directory and calling ./configure from there, and you can export CC and CXX 
as well as the according flags before running ./configure so it pics up the 
according compiler and the flags. That's basically all, no changes needed. 
The stuff is known as VPATH or builddir != srcdir :)

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
