We're slowly uploading all package.  There are still some issues
with the the debpool script though:
- Some packages don't show up because they have an "unexpected"
  file name.  This is rather annoying.
- It's missing a Release file.  This has as effect that things
  like debootstrap and the debian-installer won't work yet.
- No support for udebs.  This is an other reason d-i won't work
  yet from there.

An autobuilder would be nice.  I'll probably get an amd64 box at
the colo site where I could set it up.  The autobuilder would of
course require someone to look at all those build logs and take
the right actions.

I never had any problems with gcc.  It's rather easy to build it
too, just need to change a few things for pure64 and it works.
Note that gcc is one of those packages that doesn't show up
because of the problems with debpool.

I even compiled gcc-3.4 from experimental which also seems to
work without much problems, but I didn't really do much with it
