I'm starting from Linux i386 with a 2.6.0 release compiler as base

Maybe you can pass FPMAKEOPT="-v" (verbose mode) or FPMAKEOPT="-v
-l" (verbose + do not actually execute the command lines) to see where
it hangs?

The targetandroid branch fpc tools (fpcmake, ..) must be available
because the regular release/trunk ones do not know the arm-android
target. I.e. first compile the targetandroid branch with a regular
zipinstall or whatever and copy over the resulting fpcmake etc.

I can provide you with an i386-linux to arm-android crosscompiler ("make
crosszipinstall") with any options you want if really needed. I cannot
create (and honestly never did) a Windows build due to lack of OS.

Note that this is about building an arm/linux compiler, not arm/android.
So this maybe only works on trunk until latest changes are merged from
trunk. You can try though.

You should always use latest release (i.e. 2.6.0 currently) to start
compilation and this is what's typically tested.
