Re: ETA for toolchains for squeeze?

Hello Bill,

Currently amd64 is affected by some bug on binutils, preventing to
compile gcc, see binutils thread[1].

Testing handling is work in progress, not priority at the moment for
lack of time. Developer time is welcome towards having a working in
unstable cross toolchain.

As a user or commercial development, clearly lenny should be used.

You should not be mixing debian/testing with emdebian/sid, but
emdebian/testing (not much supported atm)

Unstable will be unstable until all transitions affecting us happen.
Not before next release.

I could try to get in shape testing toolchains on amd64 if you are
willing to contribute testing them as a user, but modify sid by
testing on the sources.list file.

Kind regards :-)
