Tools required

To compile MOSS applications (or MOSS itself), you will need a GCC cross-compiler configured for the target `i386-moss'. Ready-made MOSS cross-compiler binaries are available at our FTP site for Linux (ELF) and FreeBSD. Simply download the tar files and unpack them from your root directory; they will go into the appropriate places in /usr/local. For example, if your development machine is running Linux:

$ cd /
$ tar xvzf /tmp/moss-0.90-bin-linux.tar.gz

For other environments, you may have to build your own tools; see Section 3 for detailed instructions.
