Great. On the other side of the issue, I implemented a strategy to make
debian packages cross compilable, see dpkg-architecture(1) [in the dpkg-dev
package). It is used by quite a feq packages already to determine build and
host architecture.

The target architecture is not determined by it, although it would be
straightforward to extent it to do so, if this is wanted.
