Can you explain what are these different reasons? Disk space is a lousy 
excuse with current hard drive pricing, and since the whole point of 
dpkg-cross is to avoid compiling in the target, target resources shouldn't be 
a problem either. 

If binutils-multiarch is missing some needed arch, It would seem more usefull 
to everyone add the support to -multiarch rather that to everyone to have to 
compile their own binutils..
