+
+These scripts install the following things in the toolchain :
+- binutils (ld, ...)
+- gcc for C and C++
+
+== SETTING UP THE CROSS-COMPILER ==
+
+- Create a directory named `usr` in your home directory.
+- Add the following line to your .bashrc :
+ export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/usr/bin
+- Run cross-<arch>.sh for the architecture you target
+ Go on the internet and read some useless stuff, this step is long.
+
+== SUPPORTED CROSS-COMPILING ARCHITECTURES ==
+
+ ARCH PREFIX
+- x86 i586-elf
+- arm arm-elf
+
+== USING THE CROSS-COMPILER ==
+
+The compiler is available as *-gcc and *-g++, where * is one of the prefixes listed above (ex: i586-elf-gcc).
