I think I answered the toolchain question in my reply to Adrian's
earlier message.  There was an attached "packages" file with the complete
list of what I've got installed on the PWS.

The toolchain is up-to-date, but I don't have the infrastructure to
support a clean chroot environment, even on another local system if I
were to try and use a cross-compiler vs. a native build.  In reference
to the build dependencies, if particular versions aren't specified, or
are only loosely specified (e.g., >= some value), are the dependencies
considered "best" satisfied with a stable package version meeting the
requirement?  Or is the current unstable version of a dependency
preferred when building for "sid"?  Many variables to consider, I guess.
