Maybe you could use emulation to finish or is it a different issue?

Anyway I might be missing some bits, but I wanted to suggest about
empbuilder, it makes no sense to me, but an option on Debian's
pbuilder & sbuilder & friends (-a $arch) makes more sense if not
already there.

I am happy with the removal of emsetup and emchain, also removing
emdebian-tools functionality of adding emdebian unstable sources.list
will make me happier as it has caused some trouble on lenny.
I think I can maintain within toolchains a 'check my cross-toolchain
is installed and works' function, via build-cross-essential or
