libc6*-armel-cross are provided too. But anything beyond is not.

gcc, g++, gfortran, gobjc, gobjc++ is what I provide

The problem is that we will rather not get cross build dependencies
during next 6 months and this is required to have really easy cross
compiler packages (gcc-*-armel-cross ones from my toolchain + proper
binutils will be enough). Without it we still need to bootstrap cross
compiler if want to build on buildd. Once we will get multi-arch headers
I will work on getting cross compiler to use them as this will allow
users to "easily" install target arch libraries/headers.
