Hello,

i'm newbie.
i will create own mingw-arm-gcc and mingw-x86-gcc version (4.3.2 ???).
To do this i search some script.
What is the best platform to do this.
Linux or Windows/MinGW/MSys ?

Thanks for help.

I can not comment on "mingw-x86-gcc".

At least Yagarto, DevkitARM and Codesourcery have published
build-scripts for a cross-compiler.

I have just used MinGW/msys to build the tools that come with WinARM.
Some tweaking was needed in the past but it's much easier now with
"modern" GNU sources and updated mingw/msys. Take a look into the
DevKitARM scripts to get an idea.
AFAIK Codesourcery uses a "canadian cross" to build the cross-toolchain
for Win32-hosts and ARM targets in a Linux environment. Codesourcery's
scripts (they are in or at least have been the source-archive) may show
how Linux can be used as build-environment.
