Re: state of the different chroot environments
I have gcc and binutils in my FreeBSD chroot. If I get a chance, I'll make a
tar of it before I go on vacation, but I probably won't have time. :-(
I've attached the dpkg -l from my chroot. These packages mostly work, but there
are a few that aren't working yet. I've begun packaging FreeBSD components,
starting with the libc. Still trying to figure out how to handle shadow
passwords, because the FreeBSD libc and utils are apparently incompatible with
