Re: biarch gcc not built with 64-bit mode?

Should it be reasonable if we do next steps as to make whole project
less confusing and conflicting?

1. Grab debian unstable mirror as of now and put somewhere so everybody
   can access it (I can host it if you like). And freeze its state for
   now (with hope that it doesn't have havily broken dependancies). So
   none of the packages would be updated from the main debian trunk till
   some point and we have exact original packages and sources (now it is
not the case because some amd64 packages might not have original i386
packages available already anywhere I believe)
   I've created a mirror from bart, arnd and alioths packages
alltogether and installed kinda working system (using of cause a bit of
handcrafting: adjusted /etc/ld.so.conf file, as well as link
/usr/bin/gcc -> /usr/local/gcc.bart). Also I've defined
/etc/apt/preferences file (was reported before on the list) so I give
preference to the old versioned packages from the amd64 distro before
fresh unstable packages.

 List of packages I've installed so far
and their exact version is available from 
so can risk and try something like apt-get install `cat node10.packages`.
If you want I can put all the mirrors I've created available for public
and put sources.list I have to access them to make your life even
easier. The 

2. Using already existing and kinda working hand crafted system
   installed using  old  toolchain and other (bart, alioth) existing and
   conflicting apt sources we can start rebuilding toolchain and other
packages using diff files from bart or arnd as the start point. Doing
this way we have a chance to be consistent.

3. After all basic packages are ported with all proper dependancies and
all necessary packages and Release and Packages files present we can
start maintaining them to catch up with the main debian trunk.

So far attempts to intermix steps 2 and 3 brought too much confusion
seems to me.

Does it sound reasonable???
