[fpc-pascal]gnu binutils cross compiler/linker for linux from windows

I want to create a pascal compiler which can cross compile for linux from windows.

( So I can develop server programs on windows and then later run then on linux server's )

It seems there are 2 pascal compilers which might be able to do that:

1. free pascal.
2. gnu pascal.

I am trying to get free pascal working as a cross compiler.

I have been told by a user of free pascal that I need a cross compiler and a cross linker also websites say that.

It also seems that gnu binutils 2.14 contain a cross compiler and a cross linker ? ( or what is a cross assembler ? )

So I need to compile/link/build the gnu binutils. ( I think?: working on windows and compiling for linux )

I already tried compiling gnu binutils the simple way:

It gives this error:

/bin/sh ./../ylwrap "" deffilep.y y.tab.c deffilep.c y.tab.h deffilep.h --  -d
./../ylwrap: -d: command not found

ylwrap seems to be a script.

I have been told to install bison and flex.

My questions are the following:

Compiling binutils:

1. Which parameters to use for ./configure ?
2. How to install binutils ?

Installing flex:

1. Where do I extract the zipfile too ? does it matter ?
2. How should I compile it
3. How to install it and where ?

Same questions for bison

I'll try and post this same message to the free pascal mailing list as well.

What I am trying to do seems rather complex... I have almost no experience with linux !

I also have msys installed.

Any help would be great.
