Well, that is a pretty new thing. Are there realy people outside of
the kernel team (which probably use cvs/svn anyway) doing that?
I wonder if it would be possible to tell make-kpkg to build the -all
packages without invoking arch specific steps (which need the right
host arch). The binary-arch target could then be a nop for the wrong
archs and "dpkg-buildpackage -b" would work everywhere.
PS: Maybe something for the ToDo post sarge.
