I thought of something like this but I didn't know how to determine which
endian mode is used. Whatever, I tried to find some informations about
this issue and found this :
"The primary reason for all this byteswapping is the bootloader is
expecting the kernel and initrd in BE format; but if thebootloader is
already in LE mode, we may be able to eliminate some of the byteswapping
Actually I would try another bootloader but I'm afraid of trashing my slug
and I don't know how I'm supposed to install gentoo this way.
I would really appreciate if someone could give me some good
link/documentation about big endian/little endian (I know what this this
in theory but not about the consequences and how to deal with this in real

In addition I noticed these three lines and tried to compile the glibc again.
* CBUILD: i686-pc-linux-gnu
* CHOST: i686-pc-linux-gnu
* CTARGET: armeb-softfloat-linux-gnu
This time I used this command:
CFLAGS="-march=armv5t -Os" CTARGET="armeb-softfloat-linux-gnu" \
CXXFLAGS="-march=armv5t -Os" ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~arm" emerge --nodeps \
(note the CTARGET instead of CHOST)
And it works. Now I copied the tarball on my slug and emerged it. Then I
changed CHOST to armeb-softfloat-linux-gnu and tried to install nss_ldap.
But with the usual errors like this one:
ldap-nss.h:643: error: `NSS_STATUS' declared as function returning a function
I'll try some things and report again.
But thanks a lot so far!
