It is getting better but usually compiling natively is much easier.

I only have shallow experience with cross-compiling, though: Is this
newbie-doable or am I in for days of head-scratching ?
If the source package is cross-compilable, then it isn't much
different from compiling natively.


IIRC Helmut (one of the few people working on it) says only about 10%
of Debian is cross-compilable though. If anyone wants to help improve
that, please introduce yourself on the debian-cross mailing list.


Thanks for the infos. I'll try this if I need to cross-compile an app one day.
