Cross lacing them will affect the length about 1mm. (no big deal) I usually get spokes a couple mm short of the calculations anyway.

I think it makes a stronger rim though, and is one of the best things about fly rims.

This is the best spoke calculator I've found:
If you aren't able to take accurate measurements, it might be easier to call up danscomp or have someone at your local shop figure it out for you.
