openSUSE lacks useable cross-compilers to glibc systems. This is the attempt to provide those, most important a cross-compiler for arm/aarch64.

Required for this is a way to get at the sysroot prefix for an architecture, preferably by some rpm macro so the sysroot can be easily standardized by the various packages participating in the cross-toolchain.

A nice addon would be to have a convenient way to populate a sysroot with packages from an alternate repository using zypper.

Looking for hackers with the skills:

zypper compiler arm rpm

      Yeah, well. I'd like to have zypper get support for alternate sysroots (it kind of already has --root, but no way to specify an alternate architecture nor to initially populate a root).
