I'm currently in process of updating cross-compile building stuff. It does 
not work yet, and the process is slow because of lack of free time.
If/when I'll get existing version working, I will hopely look into 4.1 as 
well :)

It may make sence in some form...   However the exact patch provided looks 
strange and incomplete. Maybe better first to ask submitter to explain 
which procedure of building cross-compilers he means.

I agree that making it possible to apt-get install something and then 
running a command to get cross-compiler for any (including non-debian) 
target would be good. However, the exact tech details are a topic for 
discussion. Maybe debian-embedded@ people will write more. I'm CC'ing
