Hopefully Hector will be able to provide more information on that
problem. Some combinations of toolchains simply don't build and it can
be very hard to work out why.

Hmmm, yes, I'm aware of niggles like that with the search routine, need
to find some time to fix the code. (in Emdebian SVN if anyone wants to
help identify the problem but note that the same script runs the
searches for Crush, Grip and TDebs as well as toolchains).
