Subject: [Boost-build] Attempting to cross compile boost 1.46.1 on Ubuntu 10.10 for an embedded arm system

I'm trying to cross compile boost 1.46.1 for an embedded arm system on Ubuntu 10.10. I have a fairly large application with compiles fine using my arm tool chain.

When I follow the instructions for cross compiling boost bjam keeps on building ia32 objects instead of arm objects.

My user-config.jam is

using gcc : arm : /opt/timesys/i.MX51evk/toolchain/bin/armv7l-none-linux-gnueabi-g++ ;

When I enter

./bjam -toolchain=gcc-arm

The objects and libraries compiled are for ia32, not arm.

I'm checking with the Linux file command.

Any help would be appreciated.
