No, it is based on testing/unstable. Host part is mostly sarge (it was
in the 0.1 prerelease, now most of it is sid).

Well ideally I'd like to have a complete system with the bare minimum
number of patches required to make packages build & work on uclibc.
Removing Java was an idea for a short-cut to get to that stage.
What does Java have to do with compiling packages?

gcc-3.3 depends on gettext which depends on fastjar which is built by gcc-3.4

If one cuts out Java, gettext is that much smaller and easier to build, and so is gcc. Simple really.

Once again this is just a shortcut to get build-dependencies out of
the way first. Once most of the packages are present this would be
rebuilt to be the full package.
Once you want the build-dependencies back, I tell you, it will be a
pain you-know-where to put them in correct shape. And this is going to
happen once you get to the point of compinig X11 stuff and glib/gtk.

Just make a list of everything you have installed and rebuild each package one-by-one until you've covered everything. I can't see where the problem is.

I am free of all prejudices. I hate every one equally.
