Ok, I patched linux kernel source packages to add armhf (I used 2.6.35-
rc6~experimental) and even added a -efikamx flavour -dummy for now, no actual 
patches for efikamx, just wanted to play around with the linux kernel 
packaging. After some hours of compiling, I have now all armhf kernel packages 
-and indep packages- incl. linux-libc-dev. These have all gone into the 
freevec.org repository. 

Also, I tried recompiling klibc now _with_ the arm7-a tunes, and it built 

So, that's minus 2 issues yet. The good news with linux-libc-dev is that 
apt-get install build-essential succeeds now.
