[erlang-questions] cross compile of Erlang/OTP

Hello,

When cross compiling I always use these commands:

export ERL_TOP=`pwd`
./otp_build autoconf
./otp_build configure --xcomp-conf=xcomp/my.conf
./otp_build boot -a
./otp_build release -a

This takes care of setting up the proper compiler etc for building
Erlang/OTP
