There are builds of official MAME for ARM in various places, most reliably here: https://stickfreaks.com/mame/
Cross-compiling environment is detailed here: https://github.com/danmons/mame_raspberrypi_cross_compile

The only official binary version offered is for windows, yet people on osx and linux somehow manage to use unpatched top-of-tree versions. And there *are* people providing arm binaries for current versions, see https://stickfreaks.com/mame/ for instance.

And elvisap's Pi binaries should work on any ARM Debian with a compatible CPU, not just the Pi.

I stand corrected, although the links are still somewhat hidden and the home page itself not really hinting that official (or officially-supported) ARM versions are available. I won't derail this thread any further.
