Re: native or cross libssp?

It's our general policy that all libraries have configuration options
that permit them to be built in cross environment, by explicitly passing
appropriate configuration options.  Until those are added to libssp, it
 should be automatically disabled for cross builds.  Please file a PR
for this problem.

There have been several libraries contributed of late which have had
serious build and installation problems, including placing files in
incorrect directories and not being disabled in casses where they do not
work.

In future, I plan to be looking hard at any new library submissions and
asking contributors to test and fix such issues before checking in.
These problems are not hard to fix, but sometimes folks that are used to
working only in native environments do not think about them.

Thanks,
