It is not required that I build toolchain myself. Anyone can do it.
In this case, it should be done on a sarge system, using all components
(e.g. library packages for dpkg-cross'ing) from sarge.
Instructions are in gcc source package, in debian/README.cross
Patches are at http://zigzag.lvk.cs.msu.su/~nikita/debian/cross-patches/
x86 target will probably not build - at least in gcc-3.4, because of amd64
mutliarch hell. But it is hardly needed. All other targets should build.
