I tried to build it as a cross compiler and on the raspberry
directly - and faild at both. On the raspberry I got a compiler
crash, and the cross compiler build process produced random
errors - it seems to be very fragile in terms of library versions
and such.

...so I would also be very interested in any sucess stories.
