dpkg-cross 2.3.3 - preparing for migration and removal.

I've made quite a few changes in dpkg-cross, including preparations for
the migration of dpkg-cross into dpkg-dev. A lot of the old scripting
has been removed from the package and from CVS to make it easier to
import into dpkg git.

emdebian-tools 1.4.11 depends on dpkg-cross 2.3.3 as a result of the
changes in dpkg-cross.

The plan is to upload this version to Debian unstable as 2.4.0 once
Lenny is released. Then work with the dpkg team to iron out any
remaining problems in a series of releases in the 2.x.0 series, ending
with 3.0.0 which will be an empty transitional source package depending
on the relevant version of dpkg-dev which will provide dpkg-cross and
conflict with the transitional package. 3.0.0 can then be removed from
Debian testing and unstable prior to the release of Squeeze.

Once uploaded, v2.4.0 will close all remaining bugs against dpkg-cross,
clearing the way for migration and removal.
