Not without a cross-compiler. You'll probably need to compile your own 
gcc (make sure it doesn't install over your current one!) and read the 
docs carefully.

For nagios, run CC="/usr/local/bin/cross-compiling-gcc" ./configure
to make sure it uses that one instead (you might have to disable a few 
checks in ./configure as well, particularly the one checking if gcc can 
produce valid programs). You'll also need to cross-compile all libraries 
used by nagios, or compile nagios statically.
