My Netwinder is underutilized these days and is running straight
Woody, so I downloaded the sources and dependencies and left it
chewing for a while on a build. There were a few dependencies not
noted in the control file (catsboot being the most significant), but I
now have a directory containing these files:

Are these built files of any use to anyone? If so, where do I put
them? I am not (yet) a Debian developer. I know how to upload debs but
not the rest of this gunk.
If these files _are_ of use, is there anything else that it would be
of use to have built on a non-autobuilder machine? I'd love to see the
Netwinder / ARM better supported as of Woody, and I'd love to help.
