This doesn't work for -aarm either, so I conclude that the debian
cross bootstrap mechanism is broken. Possibly because there are slind
patches that simply never made it into debian proper.

It doesn't work on glibc6-2.3.6 either for -aarm. Virtuoso you are the
expert on this I think - do you expect it to work in mainstream
debian glibc sources or not?
Well, thanks. :)
Yes, I do expect this to work though not without several changes to
the build scripts. At least my [slind] arm toolchains do build (and
produce sane code) with glibc 2.3.6 and even 2.4 (which, however is
eabi-only from what I discovered some while ago) with gcc-4.1.0. I
didn't have time to test things with gcc-4.1.2 yet (apart from the
fact that the toolchain does build ok). I'll be able to work on
toolchains after a couple of weeks hopefully and I could use some help
especially if somebody wants to merge our changes back to debian.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
