That option has been deprecated for many years.

What you have to do is install one of the cross-compilers (32-bit, or
64-bit, or both), and cross compile the project.

Cross compiling can be as easy as defining CC as the cross-compiler, and
as hard as having to build all the dependencies and make sure all the
right, cross-compiles libraries, are the only ones used.
