The last Debian release using StrongARM was 5.0 "Lenny" - using the
original 'arm' port.
https://www.debian.org/releases/lenny/

ELF 32-bit LSB executable, ARM, version 1 (ARM), for GNU/Linux 2.2.0,
dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.2.0, stripped

After Lenny, 'armel' became available (and is still built, for now at
least) - it is armv4t only.

ELF 32-bit LSB executable, ARM, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.17,
dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.4.17, stripped
