That's where we're trying to get... If the toolchain is installable as
debian packages, it will be easier to bootstrap other debian packages,
as you'll be able to use dpkg-cross to install the cross-compiled
packages, making possible to find shared libraries depends... dpkg-cross
is a great tool.

Try to do ./configure in dpkg with your toolchain arch set to
'i386-pc-linux-uclibc'... It will get lost... It's possible to do some
tricks (including some patches on configure and dpkg-architecture), but
even then, dpkg will stick to i486, as the i386 debian arch is i486... I
couldn't make it work the way it really should be...

Unfortunally, I have to say that being away for debconf will be hard...
My customers requires me to be here almost all the time, so, it's almost
impossible to make another travel...
