My exams are over next week, so I'll be able to start looking into it all.
(Starting by installing a clean Debian om my laptop.) However I do believe
dpkg-buildpackage from the 1.14 package does export crossprefix... Anyway I
should review all the code, and I don't have the time now. I am also going to
the RMLL in Bordeaux (6-10 july), and will be hacking on it a little together
with Benjamin (Henrion) and P2. Let's hope it will result in anything useful.

Well if it are holidays you are taking, have loads of fun.

As Emdebian (in its current form) depends very heavily on dpkg-cross I don't
think it is a problem. I even find it a very good place to discuss it, to keep
the Emdebian developers up-to-date about one of the most important pieces of the
Emdebian build system.
