It's so straight forward to use.  You literally just need to supply it the 
compiler and any cflags.  There is nothing fancy at all required.  I can write a 
paragraph on how to do this.

For instance when I tested on Ubuntu all I did was install 
gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf and did:

  waf configure --cross-compiler=arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc

It built fine.  No OpenSSL or libevent2.  I built those later using the same 
compiler and it all worked as expected.

OK.. if anyone has any suggestions where the docs should go I can write
