There should still be a better way to do it for though. ARM is
platform #2 worldwide, and is #1 in the embedded world.

If you look up the archives, there are multiple posts by newcomers

however, get only partially working build or just drop the whole idea.
Simply ignoring this reoccurring problem does not help.
