ok, as said.. I completed debianising the chroot jail, and with a simple
script you can generate a sane GNU/FreeBSD build environment using
debian packages exclussively (well, and a pair of tarballs for glibc,
binutils and freebsd-utils). you can get them from:


there's a lot of pending work, specialy in fixing realy unhappy packages,
like dpkg and apt-get. if anyone wants to help, see the ./misc/TODO file.

also have a look at the ./misc/patches dir, there are fixes and/or hacks
to build many packages. i've submitted some of them already but i'm
currently holding untill libtool is fixed (bug #192918), so we can
tell the maintainers to update config.{guess,sub} and libtool.m4 when
submitting a patch.
