Building cross-compilers

Package: gcc-4.1
Version: 4.1.1-9
Severity: minor


I'm currently trying to build cross-compilers on my system. I found two

* Following the guidelines in debian/README.cross does not work; a plain
  "dpkg-buildpackage" calls debian/rules clean, which regenerates
  debian/control for a native build. This makes the build system break
  in all sorts of horrible ways.
* I tried to set DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS='noopt,nostrip' (since I need to run
  the compiler through gdb for some slightly odd reason), but this
  breaks; the system expects to find files in /usr/lib/debug for some of
  the library packages and tries to mv them around. Since having
  DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nostrip set means those files won't be created,
  packaging up those files does not work.

Fun will now commence
