Your build instructions are out of date. You need xapt instead of
apt-cross on Squeeze. embuilddeps is still available.

Use the instructions there for making a permanent change inside the
chroot to install xapt whihch is available in squeeze.


You could also temporarily enable squeeze-backports and install that
version of xapt, then remove the backport source.

Existing pdebuild-cross chroots are fine but installing toolchains is
not working for Wheezy or later currently.

Work is ongoing on the toolchains, pdebuild-cross is a victim of those
problems and creating new chroots will remain difficult until the
toolchains are installable.
