Indeed. And emdebian.org also 'maintains' (for some quite low value of
maintian) an aptable repository of current toolchains here:
deb http://www.emdebian.org/emdebian-tools/stable/ ./
deb http://www.emdebian.org/emdebian-tools/unstable/ ./
The stable ones are the trusty old 2.95-vintage packages which still work
fine but are too outdated for some things these days.
The unstable ones are essentially the same as Nikitas.
The web-page needs updating to point out that these exist.
I've just tried using them and found that the unstable ones are no longer
installable on unstable due to arguments about version of gcc3.4-base.
I'm just fixing that now.
The idea is to keep a set of pre-built binaries that are in-sync with Debian
so people can just apt-get them.
