 While the build is on-going, please go through the following sections
 to prepare what will be needed to test the build results.
+If you're running on a x86\_64 Linux installation, you will very
+quickly get a message {\em Cannot execute cross-compiler: ...}. This
+is because the pre-built toolchain selected in the configuration has
+been built for x86 32 bits, not x86 64 bits. In this case, we need to
+install the 32 bits libraries used by the toolchain:
+apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 zlib1g:i386
