  | 8.8. Can Erlang be cross compiled?
  | 
  | Not out of the box. While the VxWorks version of Erlang is cross
  | compiled, the build system for this is a one-off. The whole build
  | system wasn't written with cross compilation in mind. There have been
  | murmurs from volunteers to fix this, but no result (yet).
  | 
  | Patrik Nyblom posted a step-by-step VxWorks cross-compiling guide to
  | the mailing list.
  | 
  | There's a step-by-step example of what was needed to cross-compile
  | Erlang R7B for Linux on a PPC860 based embedded system.

The example is for R7B. With a few modifications, the same tricks
work for R9C. I haven't gotten to R10 yet.
