MXE (M cross environment)


MXE (M cross environment) is a Makefile that compiles a cross compiler and cross compiles many free libraries such as SDL and Qt. Thus, it provides a nice cross compiling environment for various target platforms, which:

  • is designed to run on any Unix system
  • is easy to adapt and to extend
  • builds many free libraries in addition to the cross compiler
  • can also build just a subset of the packages, and automatically builds their dependencies
  • downloads all needed packages and verifies them by their checksums
  • is able to update the version numbers of all packages automatically
  • directly uses source packages, thus ensuring the whole build mechanism is transparent
  • allows inter-package and intra-package parallel builds whenever possible
  • bundles ccache to speed up repeated builds
  • integrates well with autotools, cmake, qmake, and hand-written makefiles.
  • has been in continuous development since 2007 and is used by several projects
