Hello Marcus,

Let me repeat, I don't suggest to throw gccross away. Solutions to the
cross-compilation problem have not changed: As yesterday, they are still
either to regard DEB_* vars, or to use gccross. My opinion was only
about whether gccross should be enabled by default in dpkg-bp, or
whether the builder should request its usage explicitly. If you say it's
too much work to modify the builder at this time, it's ok with me.

Autoconf and pkg-config do this for me.

With kind regards,
