I get that, and we do want to do that. We therefor also would appreciate
some critisism, and also pointers to how we else could solve things in
your build system. For us cross building is important, and we are
willing to spend time both adding it for ourselves and getting it
upstreamed. We did not expect that these patches would be accepted as
they were, but were hoping for some response as to which parts needs to
be fixed from you guys that knows the nginx build system a lot better
than we do.
