Crosscompile radare2 with dockcross

So you want to cross-compile radare to some exotic architecture? Use this docker and you’ll save some headache:

Here’s and example on how changes required for i.e ARMv5 (no hard float) borrowed from mk/armel.mk:

ARCH=arm
CROSS_ROOT=/usr/bin
CROSS_TRIPLET=${ARCH}-linux-gnueabi

CC=${CROSS_ROOT}/${CROSS_TRIPLET}-gcc
USERCC=${CROSS_ROOT}/${CROSS_TRIPLET}-gcc

RANLIB=${CROSS_TRIPLET}-ranlib
CC_AR=${CROSS_ROOT}/${CROSS_TRIPLET}-ar -r ${LIBAR}
(...)

After defining your new mk/arch.mk file it should be pretty straighforward to install the dockcross tool from one of its own containers:

$ docker run thewtex/cross-compiler-linux-armv5 > ~/bin/dockcross
$ chmod +x ~/bin/dockcross

And then, compile normally from inside the container:

$ dockcross --image thewtex/cross-compiler-linux-armv5 ./configure --with-compiler=armel --host=armel
$ dockcross make

Here is some more context and references:
