I am developing program for raspberry pi, and i need to have libraries on my pc to cross-compile it.
Is there a way for me to download libs from pacman to something like /build/usr/lib, so i don't need to compile my packages?

Cross compiling for the pi is best done with distcc on the pi using your more powerful pc also running distcc and the right toolchain. The pi uses the ARMv6l hard toolchain. This is the official recommendation by the Arch ARM devs. http://archlinuxarm.org/developers/dist … -compiling

If you want to avoid using the pi, you could try to run arch arm in a virtual machine and run distcc from there.

So on arch, it is standard to use distcc?
Is it only on arch, or it is like that for all distros(debian and fedora)?
Thanks for replies
If i wasn't clear, I need this strictly for development, not for creating arch packages.
