I forgot to mention that for building extra packages are required.
patchelf, libboost-filesystem-dev, libboost-regex-dev .
These are the names on Debian, will find out for the other platforms
and update bld_prepare.sh .

For building, arm7l needs more things disabled than arm8, so I'd
prefer to enable as much as possible.

Have not tried yet the arm7 build on the arm8 qemu libvirt, will do.

CinGG build and loads on arm7 (armhf), but have done little testing. On
the only arm hardware I have (not counting simple smartphone), it loads
but has problems, but it is a very small machine.
And, the new tool makeappimage does not build there with a weird
compile error, still have to look at it.
