I looked to this issue, AFAICT, gcc have a gcc-base dependency, which
it is overwritten for crossbuilds by a gcc-base-cross dependency. In
the past we wrote a awk line that s/gcc-base-cross// which i do not
like much (semi-evil hack).
I believe the real problem of uninstallability it is on the libgcc1
(latter version) dependency. I need time to look into this, but if you
like to search which it is the real problem of uninstallability, we
can think on the good fix for it.
Cheers and happy weekend :-)
