Shouldn't we have some sort of coordination on debian cross-toolchain
I've just discovered that in gcc-3.3 3.3.4-3 package, some more
cross-compiler-related patches have been accepted from Jeff Bailey
It's great that different people contribute and bugs are getting fixed, I
really appreciate bug fixes. However, I'm a bit worried that README.cross
was patched to recommend a new tool (crosshurd) to create the build
environment. AFAIK until this moment we preferred dpkg-cross ...
IMHO we should define a common policy, which tools we are going to use and
why, and which debs we wish to provide and why (which host-target
combinations, which gcc versions, which libc variants, etc), and how this
corresponds to other build systems such as OpenEmbedded.
