No problem, also my fault as i did not pay enough attention to changes here.

Please, *coordinate with Emdebian* before Debian upload, I own an old
ITP which I was holding waiting to see if we still need to support
deprecated way of building cross toolchains (with-headers and
with-libs) in case multiarch arrived, but he still have to make a
group decision on whether we build deprecated cross toolchains or we
adapt to recent sysrooted cross toolchains.

Packages for Debian has been more or less ready at

So far armel cross compilers have been and are currently fine, people
is able to use them on later versions.
What needs more love are biarch architectures
(mips,mipsel,sparc,powerpc,...) which are currently broken since GCC
4.4 and fix multilib support, which was broken by the time MIPS
triarch was introduced in the Debian GCC packaging. DebianBug#553045
-- DebianBug#504487

If you or your employer is just interested on ARM architecture is also
fine, but please be considered to rest of arches, we do have some
users for other arches.

Thanks Marcin,
