His previous messages were about embedded development for ARM. I 
interpreted "I'm stuck while trying to build a cross compiler for ARM on 
FreeBSD" as (a cross compiler for ARM) (on FreeBSD) rather than (a cross 
compiler) (for ARM on FreeBSD), especially given the last sentence from 
his mail quoted above..

My guess was that the reason he was asking, was that if you do a "make 
all CPU_TARGET=arm" at the top level to get an ARM cross-compiler, the 
Makefile will default to $(OS_SOURCE)/$(CPU_TARGET), which will indeed 
result in complaints about FreeBSD/ARM not being supported if you do it 
on FreeBSD.
