f you post some technical details, probably I can help with this?
I've either fixed or commented almost all bugs reported against dpkg-cross,  
and my current version (1.14.5) seems to work very well.
It is in my repository at http://zigzag.lvk.cs.msu.su/~nikita/debian/

I really wish to become a DD ... could you please advocate me?

Btw, some problems have been reported to me about gcc-cross building for 
powerpc target; I was able to reproduce misbehaviour, and am currently 
working on fixes. One problem was in dpkg-cross (dpkg-shlibdeps wrapper); 
fix is in 1.14.5, but there are more problems, so updstes in gcc packaging 
scripts will be needed.

I've got a message or two from him; seems he is currently busy with exams; 
also he wrote

Since version of dpkg-cross in sid is really broken, I believe NMUing my 
last version is a good idea. If I need to do something to make it 
possible, please let me know.
