I'm developing audio application using ALSA library. My target platform is ARM 
platform baseboard. I use GNU toolchain cross compiler as you can see from 
the following message:

arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc -lasound -g -O2 -I./alsa-lib-1.0.17rc2/include -o pcm pcm.c
/usr/bin/../lib/gcc/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/4.2.0/../../../../arm-none-linux-gnueabi/bin/ld: cannot find -lasound
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [versatile] Error 1

I know that is because the linker cannot find the asound library. Should I cross compiling 
ALSA driver/lib/utils first?
