Thanks for the info, I'll try your pull request.

What does setting CC to gcc-linux-arm do, invoke the ARM linker?  
How do I make sure druntime/phobos are compiled for ARM?

Just so it's clear, I want to compile ldc as a linux/x86 binary 
that will generate ARM code on an x86 host, then compile 
druntime, phobos, and their unit tests as ARM libraries/binaries 
to deploy to an ARM target.
