I don't know. When I do cross compiling I do it for and with NetBSD.
cd /usr/src && ./build.sh -m hp700 tools
is all I need to do to get a NetBSD-hppa cross toolchain.

To do the same for Linux you need to setup a complete cross toolchain,
prepare all the glibc stuff for cross compiling, do a lot of include
path twisting so that allways the Linux/glibc stuff is used, ... fight
with the autoconf scripts of the Linux-ware (I doubt that they are cross
compile aware), ... Nothing you can do in a weekend. In practice all the
source has to be cross compile proof. AFAIK it took months to make the
NetBSD source cross compilable.
