+Cross Compiling DPDK
+--------------------
+
+To cross-compile DPDK on a desired target machine we can use the following
+command::
+
+ meson cross-build --cross-file <target_machine_configuration>
+
+For example if the target machine is arm64 we can use the following
+command::
+ meson arm-build --cross-file config/arm/arm64_armv8_linuxapp_gcc
+
+where config/arm/arm64_armv8_linuxapp_gcc contains the following
+parameters::
+
+ [binaries]
+ c = 'aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc'
+ cpp = 'aarch64-linux-gnu-cpp'
+ ar = 'aarch64-linux-gnu-ar'
+
+ [host_machine]
+ system = 'linux'
+ cpu_family = 'aarch64'
+ cpu = 'armv8-a'
+ endian = 'little'
