I have, since making a little progress. But I've forgotten what it's like to
have a weekend, since the Bush Economy II.

I did see this, and thanks, but it is the distillation of what you know, into
the core process. Imagine if I changed all the words on that page randomly;
would you understand it?
A n00b needs a perspective of what's being done and why, in order to
understand the meaning, and how to adjust for other conditions. I imagine
you ascertained these commands from the Readme's, and so I may too.
Hopefully then these instructions will make sense. You have confirmed though
that SnP is the way to go for binaries, apparently.
I'd gone through the past 4 months of listserv archives, but no assistance
there for my questions.

My intention is to accomplish not just the task at hand, but in the process to
make a development environment that allows quick portage to any architecture.
Trying to build a solid foundation, rather than take a route prone to error.
Unfortunately though, the Cross-Compile Environment gcc refuses to compile as
previously reported, which throws the whole distro into doubt since this is
the environment recommended. I've invested about as much time as I can
afford for tools. (three 12-hour days)
