Re: attempt at a big-endian debian ARM 'port'

I never managed to compile any applications for my Arcom ARM big-endian board using scratchbox.
I had before another little-endian board, and it was no problem.
In fact, there was no suitable big-endian cross-compilation scratchbox package available, and the procedure to build its own was really difficult.
Thus, to work with scratchbox, your platform must accept little-endian elf binaries for arm (though there is also a compiler for ppc).
Unfortunatelly, because it is really a good tool, making the job easy when you must build a complex package containing automake, configure, etc...

We're already bootstrapped and all, so what I'd rather see now would
be a buildd network.  There's about 1800 armeb packages right now, and
so most of the prerequisites for most of the packages are there, it's
just a matter of getting the rest built.
