I don't know a ton about cross-compiling, but this page seems to show
you the basic steps, albeit for a different architecture: -
this requires that you have a GNU/Linux machine to cross-compile from.

If you happen to have Debian or Ubuntu for your distribution you can
automatically install a cross-compiling GCC with just:

sudo apt-get install gcc-powerpc-linux-gnu

Then you'll need to cross-compile ncurses which nano needs to build,
and finally (presumably) nano should cross-compile; it at least seemed
like it would have when I tried it with:
CC=powerpc-linux-gnu-gcc ./configure --host=powerpc-linux-gnu

in the nano source dir

I hope this helps.
