Your message is the first one on the list, so no. It's brand new. You can
see some previous similar discussions at the embedded-debian mailing list:

Erik Andersen is the debian man who knows all about uclinux - I don't know
if he's signed up here yet. He has a fine set of build makefiles for
uclinux-friendly toolchains:

None of this stuff is in debian yet but I'm working on binutils-arm and
gcc-arm packages based on toolchain-source. I'm not yet sure if a single
tollchain can be made to be good for both uclinux and 'normal' use so we
might need a separate optimised toolchain for that. I'll post more on this

A very useful doc for doing cross-development on debian is this one:

As for native debian support for coldfire/uclinux I'm not aware of any -
all the debian 68k support is for MMU-ful devices. Emdebian and now this
list are intended to work out good ways of supporting this sort of
variation for developers. At the moment I assume anyone who needs this
stuff builds everything they need from scratch against uclibc with
approriate options/toolchain? Is there an easier way?
