I would suggest that you have a look in the config.log file and share with us
the complete file, as always use a paste service if possible.

It can absolutely be used on arm.

For example see our portbuild testing matrix here:

On 32bit only platform you are limited to 32bit tracing and all the limitation
related to 32bit, if any is applicable to your use case.

Our project use standard autotools/make mechanism for cross compilation scenarios:

I am not aware of any problem at this level but after looking around our CI I
think we do not do a lot of cross compilation. Still I know that yocto and
buildroot use cross-compilation for lttng and its dependencies without any major

Still, we will wait for the config.log file before putting this in the: not a lttng problem.
