As I mentioned before my script was adapted from the Sysrpl script which
written for a 64bit Ubuntu 14.04 , and may not have been tried on a 32bit

1. When 'make all' followed by 'make install' does the 'make all' command
generate the cross compilers as well, for them to be installed by
crossinstall, or does cross install create the cross compiler from scratch
then install it afterwards?

2. Does the source download come with all the necessary tools for a
successful crossinstall, or are there additional tools required, and does
the make process check for their presence before starting the compilation?
