Thanks, I'm going to give it a try.

Well, I meant mostly the ABI, processor type and possible incompatibilities I have no idea about.
The reason behind it: I've had trouble building a package on SHR or openembedded cross-toolchain, so I tried to hack the problem away using LD_LIBRARY_PATH with Debian /usr/lib, but it resulted in illegal instructions.
I don't know the exact reason (different ABI? incompatible library versions?), so I was asking just in case.

The package is mrpt-libs, and the build options are its dependencies on various big packages I don't need or want, e.g. OpenCV.
