    I build on x86, for aarm64/armv7 musl targets, using cross-rs. My issue is, forever and always, tls. Previously I just used openssl = { version = '0.10', features = ["vendored"] } in Cargo.toml.

    A Docker-based solution like cross is generally suggested because the ad-hoc nature of C and C++ build systems can impart an unpredictable level of difficulty on cross-compiling any C or C++ libraries your Rust code depends on.

    Yes, cross compiling with is relatively painless. I recommend doing that instead of compiling on the PI.

    I develop on x86, and when targeting other platforms, I use cross-rs to compile, the applications are always deployed on Docker containers, using either ubuntu:22.04, or alpine:3.17 as the Base (to x86, armv6, or arrm64 targets, depending on the project).

    Way to reproduce: 1. Create a new project 2. Add compress-tools = "0.14" to Cargo.toml 3. Install docker and cross-rs 4. Create Cross.toml with content [target.armv7-unknown-linux-musleabihf] pre-build = ["DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get -yq install libarchive-dev protobuf-compiler"] 5. Run cross build --release --target armv7-unknown-linux-musleabihf

    As for inspiration, look no further than cross.

    I strongly recommend trying to use cross it should work fine for you use case, it not only takes care about compiler/linker but also external libs you might link against. If a lib is missing you can make you own dockerfile and install it in the target sysroot you are compiling then against.

    Have you seen cross? I don't normally do multi-platform builds, but I've used it for compiling for different arches. For me if there's nothing major dynamically linked then it "just works(TM)". If you do need to link to something like SQLite then you can setup your own base image that provides it (the "Custom Docker image" section)
