I have installed 'lenny' cross toolchain in an Ubuntu environment
without any issue. Toolchain binaries are independent from system
binaries. :-)

Currently, for next release work we are sharing efforts. See Loïc
Minier (lool) ppa at launchpad,
They enable smash stacking protection and they might default to armv7
(I do not know this for sure, but karmic is armv7). So work it is in
progress to fit multiarch, sysroot, and fullfil all debian/ubuntu
architectures plus exotic ones. It is just a matter of free time
dedicated to this goal.
