In both cases I believe you basically need to do a language bring up.
I've not looked at exactly what required but the process would likely
be something like:
1) cross compile on x86
2) native compile using the cross compile
3) local rpm build using native compile
4) rebuild rpm version using rpm version
5) import native rpm build into koji
6) koji build and then remove import
It should be fairly straight forward but most of that needs to be done
by someone with appropriate admin rights in koji. I would be prepared
to do it but someone would need to provide me with complete steps for
1-3 so I have a recipe to follow.
yes, at least for ADA you do need a working ADA compiler to compile ADA support.
I think you can get away with using the debian tarball for arm, then recompile the
gcc.srpm using that, then use the new rpm to recompile the actual compiler to be
included.(or recompile it again, if you don't trust the rpm. *shrugs*)
