That is one approach.
Another is to use VMs.
VMs are nowadays very easy to setup and they run almost as fast (sometimes
even faster) as the host system.
Installing/Upgrading all the required libs in a VM is much simpler than
setting up these libs cross compiled.

Maybe someone wants to setup VM image for public download for his favorite
distribution with preinstalled Lazarus and other common development tools.

Lazarus projects and packages are made for cross platforms. So you can
simply copy them or use VCS.

The default project options (compiler options with build modes) are stored
in ~/.lazarus/projectoptions.xml

Linux/arm, and WinCE/arm.
