[vbox-dev] Cross-building VBox

Hi,

Is there a straightforward way to build VBox on one platform,
targeting another? Specifically, I'm trying to build the Mac version
in a Linux environment.

At a very superficial read, the ./configure script seems to make
assumptions that the build environment will also be the running
environment. (BUILD_PLATFORM=$OS; BUILD_TARGET=$OS)

I've tried just manually changing BUILD_TARGET to "darwin" before
running kmk, but (unsurprisingly) that didn't work.
