I am trying to cross-compile oprofile(0.9.2).  I am doing this because I am thinking I will need the opdeamon executable to run on the target. I am using the command below to configure it for cross-compile.
./configure --host=powerpc-linux-gnuspe --with-kernel-support.
The above command fails as "configure: error: popt library not found"
I would be appreciate if anybody on the group could send me the steps to follow for  cross-compile of this packag. Really I think I would need just the opdeamon to be cross-compiled.
[vsubbiah@vsubbiah-lnx1 oprofile-0.9.2]$ ./configure --host=powerpc-linux-gnuspe --with-kernel-support
