Compiling Haiku for Arm64

Haiku can be compiled for devices leveraging the ARMv8 64-bit processor architecture. Please ensure that you have obtained a copy of Haiku’s source code as described in Get the Haiku Source Code if you have not already done so. Unstable The state of the ARM64 port is extremely early. Roll up your sleeves and help out! Create a Compiler Toolchain Building the ARM64 compiler toolchain is quite easy using Haiku’s configure tool.
