I haven't tried cross compiling in a while, and do not have a setup to do
so at the moment (no cross glibc on my machines).

But I do try to make it easier for distros to package these. In
the trace-cmd repo, there's a[1] script that sets the
proper variables. This can also be used on libtraceevent and libtracefs.

Perhaps that can work with a cross compile environment too?
