(I'm not sure what the "itself" refers to in the above sentence) And in case you mean the compiler: under which circumstances does lazarus try to recompile the fpc source tree? (its makefiles or "build lazarus" commands at least don't do that, afaik)

I know I harp on this repeatedly, but I use linux-i386 to build applications (and lazarus itself) 
for i386-linux / i386-win32 / i386-darwin / powerpc-darwin. If you are getting broken executables 
then your toolchain is broken. Freepascal and Lazarus are both very capable of working in a cross 
compile environment.
