> {quote}Hi,
> Would you guys consider making cross compile easier on your roadmap?
> The platform I tried to have it running was OpenWRT, which has its own
> problems such as the libresolv is a stub in the most popular C library
> choice uClibc, that is causing some troubles. What I mean is, even
> without these problems, any cross compile would fail because of of the
> use of bicfl.
> Apparently somebody had gone through the painful process 10 years ago:
> http://mailman.icsi.berkeley.edu/pipermail/bro/2005-July/001318.html
> This fella has created a set of patches of CMake files for 2.3.1-2:
> http://inspirated.com/2015/06/08/release-bro-2-3-1-2-on-openwrt
> Which is hosted on this github page:
> https://github.com/krkhan/openwrt-bro/tree/master/bro/patches
> The build he created would fail because old versions are not being
> hosted on your site, but more importantly the patches are obsolete as
> of 2.4. Those patches are not huge, it would be great if you guys
> would consider making it easier.
> Thanks,
