<p><a href="https://mesonbuild.com/Cross-compilation.html">Meson supports
cross-compilation</a> by specifying a number of binary paths and
settings in a file and passing this file to <code>meson</code> or
<code>meson configure</code> with the <code>--cross-file</code>
parameter.</p>
<p>This file can live at any location, but you can use the bare filename
(without the folder path) if you put it in $XDG_DATA_HOME/meson/cross or
~/.local/share/meson/cross</p>
<p>Below are a few example of cross files, but keep in mind that you
will likely have to alter them for your system.</p>
<p>
32-bit build on x86 linux:
<pre>
[binaries]
c = '/usr/bin/gcc'
cpp = '/usr/bin/g++'
ar = '/usr/bin/gcc-ar'
strip = '/usr/bin/strip'
pkgconfig = '/usr/bin/pkg-config-32'
llvm-config = '/usr/bin/llvm-config32'
[properties]
c_args = ['-m32']
c_link_args = ['-m32']
cpp_args = ['-m32']
cpp_link_args = ['-m32']
[host_machine]
system = 'linux'
cpu_family = 'x86'
cpu = 'i686'
endian = 'little'
</pre>
</p>
<p>
64-bit build on ARM linux:
<pre>
[binaries]
c = '/usr/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc'
cpp = '/usr/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu-g++'
ar = '/usr/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu-ar'

[host_machine]
system = 'linux'
cpu_family = 'arm'
cpu = 'aarch64'
endian = 'little'
</pre>

64-bit build on x86 windows:
<pre>
[binaries]
c = '/usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc'
cpp = '/usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++'
