It's versioning logic. Older dpkg-cross used to have other default paths, 
so something should be done to avoid packages created by older dpkg-cross 
to satisfy dependences of packages created by newer dpkg-cross.

Do you mean it works incorrectly in some cases? If so, I'm interested in 
details ...

Your patches are welcome.

I thought that best way to handle other libc's is introducing other 
'architectures', like i386-uclibc. Then tools could just cross-compile for 
this 'architecture'.
