When I started with cross compiling, debian/README.cross was my first
reading, too. And I agree that it needs to be revised.

At that time I summarized my experiences in:


It half "Debian cross compiling" and half "Win32 cross compiling".
Maybe I should split it into these two topic, but I don't know how.

Anyway, at least the half of it should be interesting for you. HTH
