Can't get cross debugging to work

- Subject: Can't get cross debugging to work
I've been breaking my head trying to figure out the recipe
to cross debug from a Linux 32bit to a Linux 64bit. Can't do it.
Could someone be kind enough to confirm the steps?
Do I need to 'set architecture'?
Do I need to 'set osabi'?

I've tried setting the architecture, I've tried building with --target instead of --enable-targets,
I've tried different names for the target (where are those defined anyway?), I've tried using
--enable-targets=all. Nothing works. Sigh.
Thanks in advance
