Build of powerpcspe port
We're evaluating to
build an embedded system on powerpc e500v2 (=powerpcspe) architecture. We made
some tests using binary powerpcspe sid from debian-ports (http://wiki.debian.org/PowerPCSPEPort)
and would like to proceed. Actually our major concern is that the actual
powerpcspe port is based on sid/unstable which is no good base for a commercial
For this reason we
want to try to build the a powerpcspe port from source based on a stable debian
release (e.g. squeeze) and i'm looking for some hints to get started. Can
someone please give me some hints on how to (cross)build the debian packages?

We could assume that
a properly configured cross-compiler is available, e.g. we use "make
ARCH=powerpc CROSS_COMPILE=/opt/codesourcery/bin/powerpc-linux-gnu-" to build
the kernel. Otherwise any hints on dealing with cross compiling are also
