I have an embedded box. This runs linux on it. It is based on MIPS architecture.
To be more specific it is mipsel. I want to debug my application using TCF.

I understand in order to first connect to the remote target. I need to have a agent running on it.
I downloaded the agent code.
git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/tcf/org.eclipse.tcf.agent.git

How can I cross-compile with my toolchain to generate agent binary?

My first way to check the agent is by doing a telnet into the box via TCF.
The steps I do follow are
1) Windows-> OpenPerspective->others -> Remote System Explorer.
2) Right click -> new connection-> Telnet ( experimental) only.
3) HostName IP address; this is my target device IP address.
4) After all these steps it doesn't connect. I believe the reason is that the agent is not running in the box.
Please correct me if I am wrong here.

Then the entire problem boils down to "How can I cross compile the agent for my mipsel toolchain".
I already have a toolchain with me.
