Hello, I've offered to adopt this package, since I've actually USED it in the past (to cross-compile kernel for both m68k and sparc). However, it build-depends on cross-binutils (which is currently unavailable), AND libc6 and libc6-dev from the target archetecture (which require manual installation), and I'm unsure what exactly to do about that. I did ask the binutils maintainer (<email@example.com>) to re-apply the cross-binutils patch (with minor changes; see <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=105368&repeatmerged=yes>). I'm considering a wrapper script to do a source build, that will install all the 'manual' dependencies properly. -- 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.
