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 (<chris@debian.org>) to re-apply the
cross-binutils patch (with minor changes; see

I'm considering a wrapper script to do a source build, that will install
all the 'manual' dependencies properly.


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.
