I don't think that emdebian is the right direction for your package,
although there are certainly many parallels to what they are trying to
do.  The approach used by the AVR toolchain is more seems more appropriate.

What are your plans for a runtime library?  Newlib might be a good
choice, since there are already source and HC11 packages.  I haven't
looked at the details of the avr-libc package to see what they are doing.

Finally, you might should specify whether you are "binutils-armel" or
"binutils-armeb" instead of the more generic "binutils-arm", since the
latter architecture was deprecated for Debian.
