After that debacle with opening PRs about things I should've found
were already documented, I had a look at the BUILDING document to see
what I could add. (Embarrassment is an excellent motivator for me...)
I thought there could be more information supplied to hopefully
save someone else from confusion. Also, the list of arguments to
build particular targets was very out of date, so I tried my hand at
updating it, based on what's in the current script. I'm not
sure I got it right in all cases, but I put in every combination I
saw. I hope this helps.
(1) Become confused while trying to build a userland.


(2) Notice there are many options for different ARM machines (ABI,
endianness, architecture) and wonder how to enable them.
