One of  the biggest hurdles for compiling on one computer and sending the binary to a second computer is the architecture type.  For our purposes we are developing on a powerpc architecture and sending the compiled binary to a mips processor.  This is done through the use of a crosscompiler, our powerpc to mips crosscompiler is located in:
All compiling programs are prefixed with <tt>mipsel-linux-uclibc-</tt> to differentiate the crosscompiler from the local system's compiling programs.  A simple recommendation is to add the crosscompiler directory to your path.  This can be done by typing:
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/project/EmbeddedOS/crosscompiler
Alternativly, this can be added to your <tt>.profile</tt> or <tt>.bashrc</tt> (or whatever script loads when you use a terminal...).
All the standard GNU Compiler Collection programs should exists (most importantly gcc and objdump are there).
