Although arm-linux seems to be fairly straight forward, please document the configure options for building the cross binutils.

./configure --help shows you some options.  The only ones you really 
need to care about is --target and --prefix.  The build system will be 
guessed and you can have a look at gas/configure.tgt for an idea of the 
targets.  Sometimes you will also need --disable-werror, since by 
default the build will fail if there's a warning (iirc).

You can do neat things like use linux to build arm-linux cross binutils 
that runs on Windows (I've done this and it works).
