Okay. Just had time to poke at the toolchain. Chris, I just sent a bug asking if you could put cross-binutils build support back in but have it build no cross targets by default. If we're going to support cross-compiling in any sane way, we probably should have a system that dpkg-crosses the necessary libs and builds the packages on the target machine. Would this system work better than re-including binutils-<arch> in the archive again? If so.. I think we should just pull gcc-m68k-linux from Woody and try to work on something for (Sarge, is it?) Woody+1. Besides, it build-depends on packages that don't properly exist in Debian. ;) -- Ferret I will be switching my email addresses from @ferret.dyndns.org to @mail.aom.geek on or after September 1, 2001, but not until after Debian's servers include support. 'geek' is an OpenNIC TLD. See http://www.opennic.unrated.net for details about adding OpenNIC support to your computer, or ask your provider to add support to their name servers.
