Maybe better to fix dpkg-cross? Do you have test cases that fail?
Indeed, I finally got to investigate this problem. It concerns
alternate libc (uclibc) architectures.
For example, we have an uclibc-mipsel toolchain installed (and no
glibc/mipsel at the same time) and we try to strip anything (using
/usr/share/dpkg-cross/strip). detect_arch() calls file to detect the
architecture to be mipsel and not uclibc-mipsel. Since we don't have
mipsel-linux-gnu-strip, but only mipsel-linux-uclibc-strip, it
defaults to /usr/bin/strip which in turn fails due to unsupported
See the patch I just sent to the list.
This also eliminates the need for postinst script for binutils.
