I take it you haven't seen
which goes into some detail about cross compiling the tools?

Correct, the instructions in [1] are about building the hypervisor
binary ("kernel") itself, not the tools. I shall clarify that.

As well as a toolchain you will also need a cross compile environment
with all of the appropriate library's development headers, which should
include the .pc files. The link above covers setting up a suitable
Ubuntu cross environment.
