I don't know VxWorks at all but assuming you can cross-compile for it
using autotools. In this case you need to setup a cross-compiler
toolchain and pass the required options for ./configure script. The
daily builds currently cross-compile Windows binaries on Linux using
mingw32 and the following configure line:

./configure --target=mingw32 --build=i686-linux --host=i586-mingw32msvc

I assume VxWorks would be something similar but I really don't know
the platform at all.
