Cross compiling UnSlung 6.8 beta with Ubuntu 8.04

After much research I have to say that the information around this is area is generally of bad quality and very difficult to follow. The developers are just not interested in writing and maintain documentation. As of writing this 15-Sep-08 this is what I discovered to get a UNSLUNG cross compiling build going on Ubunutu 8.04

mkdir slug
cd slug

vi Makefile  <-- remove reference to cogito for setup-host-ubuntu target

make setup-host-ubuntu
make setup-unslung-6.8-beta
cd releases/unslung-6.8-beta
make distro
