I think the references to CMake might be 0MQ 1.0 stuff. Can you point me to

In any case, 0MQ 2.x uses a standard autotools-based build system, so to
cross-compile you want to use the standard options provided by the
"configure" script.

You'll want to use the --host option to "configure" to cross-compile the
library to whichever target you're using.
