8.36 --configure_sysroot=path

Specifies the system root path to use when configuring the tools for use with ARM Linux.



Where path is the system root path to use.


This option overrides any system root path that is automatically detected. It can be used as part of a manual approach to configuring the tools for use with ARM Linux if you want to use a different path to your normal system root path.

The system root path is the base path that libraries and header files are normally found from. On a standard Linux system, this is typically the root of the file system. In a cross compilation GNU toolchain, it is usually the parent directory of the GNU C library installation. This directory contains the lib, usr/lib, and usr/include subdirectories that hold the C libraries and header files.
