Emdebian on armel: packages fail to build.


I've spent quite some time trying to figure out how to use emdebian
and now I finally can compile packages, it actually isn't that hard if
you read the whole manual :) but I still have some problems.

I want to install emdebian on my OpenMoko (armel) and play around with
it, but I can't create a root filesystem because a couple of packages
refuse to compile: "busybox libstdc++6 libgcc1 libdebian-installer4
debconf-shell". All the other packages compile without error and
produce the right packages.

I compile my packages like this:
emsource --arch armel -b --build-dep foo

>From what I've read I understood that this command will build the
package foo and all it's dependencies, so I think that's right. Then I
use a for loop to automate building of all packages.

busybox clearly fails on a patch that it is trying to apply, but with
the other packages I don't know what's wrong, they just print out
"Recording that the package failed to build.". There don't appear to
be any compiler errors.

I'm compiling from within a Debian Sid chroot and I'm compiling Sid
source packages. I've read something about Squeeze on the website, but
I can't find any Debian repositories named sqeeze.

I must be doing something wrong, but I don't know what is, can someone
please help me?
