A few hints...

./configure --prefix=YOUR_INSTALL_PATH


cd src/main

copy gen_test_char and gen_uri_delims to your target (PowerPC) system

run gen_test_char and gen_uri_delims on your target system

copy the output of gen_test_char to test_char.h on your host system

copy the output of gen_uri_delims to uri_delims.h on your host system

cd -


*** I may not have the syntax exactly right on the next command, but it
gives you the idea:

find -name "*\.a" -exec \
  /opt/hardhat/devkit/ppc/8xx/bin/powerpc-linux-ranlib {} \;


make install
