Cross-compiling socat

Hello all,

I am currently implementing the VirtIO devices for bhyve on ARM, more
specifically the VirtIO-console device.

However, I am stuck since I need to use 'socat' on the host, but
cross-compiling always fails (the ports do not seem to have a
straight-forward make system for cross-compiling as far as I could tell).
I have tried using `./configure --host=amd64 --build=armv6
CC=arm-none-eabi-gcc`,
in the 'work/socat-1.7.3.2' directory, but this doesn't seem to work.

If anyone could provide any insight, it would be greatly appreciated.

Have a nice day,
Darius
