Has anyone tried cross compiling a full emacs (21) for the Zaurus? Are there obvious obstacles to doing so?

This is as far as I've got on my FC3 system (please bear with me, this
is my first attempt at cross-compiling an application):

First, I downloaded and installed binutils-cross-arm-2.11.2-0.i386.rpm,
gcc-cross-sa1100-2.95.2-0.i386.rpm, glibc-arm-2.2.2-0.i386.rpm

# Extract sources and configure them
tar -zxf emacs21.3.tar.gz
mkdir emacs-arm-build
cd emacs-arm-build

export PATH=/opt/Embedix/tools/bin/:$PATH
CC=arm-linux-gcc ../emacs-21.3/configure --build=i386-linux \
 --host=arm-linux --without-x

# Fix library paths
cd src
mv Makefile Makefile.orig
sed -e"s:/usr/lib/crt1.o:/opt/Embedix/tools/arm-linux/lib/crt1.o:" \
   -e"s:/usr/lib/crti.o:/opt/Embedix/tools/arm-linux/lib/crti.o:" \
   -e"s:/usr/lib/crtn.o:/opt/Embedix/tools/arm-linux/lib/crtn.o:" \
   < Makefile.orig > Makefile

# Make binary needed during compilation
make CC=gcc prefix-args
cd -

# Gather everything needed to build final emacs binary on the Zaurus
make; make
export SDIR=../emacs-21.3
export DDIR=../emacs-arm
mkdir -p $(DDIR)/{lisp,info,bin,etc}
cp src/temacs $(DDIR)/bin
cp $(SDIR)/lisp/*.elc $(DDIR)/lisp
cp $(SDIR)/lisp/{paths,loadup,loaddefs,version}.el $(DDIR)/lisp
cp -r /usr/share/emacs/21.3/etc/* $(DDIR)/etc

So, I happily copy the emacs-arm directory over to my Zaurus and run:

temacs -batch -l loadup dump

... and realize that there are paths from my desktop system hardcoded
into the temacs binary:

Warning: arch-independent data dir (/usr/local/share/emacs/21.3/etc/) does not exist
Warning: Lisp directory `/home/peter/src/emacs-21.3/lisp' does not exist.
Cannot open load file: loadup

Where do I go from here? Suggestions gratefully received. And better ways of cross-compiling Emacs would be even better!

(Also posted to comp.emacs).
