We are in the process to bring to emdebian.org armhf and powerpcspe
ports. In the meanwhile processes are running on a machine on my home
DSL network, we are looking for a better hosting for a
buildd.emdebian.org machine.

Besides installation issues (`apt-cross' to be removed) toolchains are
not configured with sysroot support, but it should be possible to
build them exporting WITH_SYSROOT (and WITH_BUILD_SYSROOT) enviroment

You should also be able to build gcc-4.5 in `experimental'.
