Flags for other platforms during static lib compilation?

Dear Joshua,

it is possible to cross-compile lisp code using ECL. Basically, one 
needs to set up paths the compiler and linker binaries as well as paths 
to the include and library directories in the host compiler (built in 
the first step of cross-compiling ECL itself, see the INSTALL file for 
instructions) to point to the ones for the target system.

One can then call `compile-file` as usual, taking care to either load 
files with the bytecompiler or compiling twice (once for the target and 
once for the host) before loading.

For an example how this works, see the EQL5 project 
https://gitlab.com/eql/EQL5-Android/. You could also look at 
for an example with a basic asdf integration.

Best regards,
Marius Gerbershagen
