I just tried to build some pgcc-packages:
$ apt-get source gcc
$ cd gcc-2.95.2
$ chmod +x debian/rules
$ debian/rules patch
$ zcat ~/dl/gcc-2.95.2-pcgg-2.95.3.diff.gz | patch -p1
[You get 2 rejects that you can safely ignore]
$ fakeroot debian/rules binary
There are, however some issues I have did not sort out:
- The packages have the same names as the debian packages, but
you could rename those in the debian/ dir.
- The packages contain the same binaries as the official ones.
I don't know if there is a switch to ./configure to give all
binaries a common prefix?
- I don't know if the patches under debian/patches will go well
with the pgcc patch. There should be at least some testing be
neccessary before it can be uploaded to unstable.
Is this enough as a starting point to package pgcc? Perhaps some
developer could rename the packages, make them conflict with gcc
and upload to experimental to get the testing done?
