Each package should be as portable as possible. But of course it's
much easier to get things moved in that direction if the needed
changes are as little as possible ;-)

So it's a good thing not rely on fixed paths for programs. I like the
suggestion for SHELL=`which bash` very much.

The cross compilation issue is very important for Debian. This way we
can perform compilation for all our platforms on a single
machine. Perhaps we can set up such a machine to compile all our
source package after uploading. This way we can ensure that each
package is available for every platform immediately.
