Well spotted. That is indeed the offending bit. dpkg-architecture now seems to give
the right answers.
That has revealed that dpkg-cross needed armel support, which I've done,
but that raises some questions about definitive arch-names, and
dpkg-architecture -L. I'll post another mail about that.
And that reveals some problems in the existing gcc-4.1-4.1.1ds2 patch
(armel/armeb are used as a CPU name in rules.def, but they aren't so
the wrong things try to get built). I've fixed that, and will post
all three patches once a finished cross-compiler pops out with no further probs.
