About Cross compiling environment setup for ARM Architecture pedora OS

Linux on ARMIn this article, I’m using raspberry pi hardware, and using pedora 32-bit target OS, Scientific Linux 6.1 64-bit as host OS, crosstool-ng as cross compiling tool. I will give a brief introduction steps about how to build binaries and shared/static libraries, and in the process, some building depends on third party libraries

Question: Why we need setup the cross compiling environment?
The ARM architecture is not powerful enough to build the binary as quick as we want, so we need setup a toolchain build environment on a powerful host OS which is using Intel or AMD cpu to build binaries for target OS running on ARM cpu.
