So, really, the nginx community is not interested in improving the
cross-compilation support?
If so, just take some time to answer but don't leave people in the dark, please.

Note that this series addresses the comments done on the first post [3-6].

BTW, it's not something I want to push blindly, because:
- in the Buildroot project [1], we try to send patches to the upstream
project as much as possible patches (as long as the patches are clean
enough to get accepted);
- once integrated in Buildroot [1], automatic jobs [7] will run
build-tests, so if further fixes are needed, we will do them; so we
won't let this cross-compilation support unmaintained.
