I’ve always built directly on the Pi. I don’t have the patience to faff around with the setting up and surviving cross-compilers. Gcc etc annoys me enough as it is.  A Pi2 compiles the stack vm in a few minutes anyway and with dependencies and other problems fixed it would hardly ever need to do  clean build.

I do of course have to kinda-sorta cross compile for the Cog work, but that’s more a case of building a (hopefully plausible) simulator and running hopeful-cog code on it. We just have to hope that the sim is near enough the real thing...
