Re: dpkg-cross: calculating wrong dependencies?
Hey Neil! That was a good one :-)
I'll see if it handles dependencies as it should.

That is an error. It should depend on gcc-$vers-base-arm-cross but the
problme is that the build instructions omit a crucial environment
variable so that the base package is not built when it should.

That is the reverse too - gcc-4.1 won't install cleanly because
depending on the non-cross version of base means that updates to 4.1
cannot be installed without removing the cross built packages which
depend on native base, not cross base. This is a "build independence"
problem that was causing packages to be held back but the build
instructions for gcc-4.1 need updating to add a command:
before building gcc.
