Are these cross-tools built from the regular source packages, with
different build parameters, or via the toolchain-source package?  (If
the former, is there a HOWTO somewhere?)

There was a recent question about toolchain-source on debian-devel,
for example.  If using the regular packages results in a better set of
cross-tools, perhaps toolchain-source should be deprecated somehow in
etch, or at least some README information added to that package?
