Setting up the repo as described and running `apt-get install

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

(>= 4.9.1-1) but it is not going to be installed
Everything has just changed for jessie anyway as 4.9.2-10 gcc migrated
to testing so 4.9.1-19 is now obsolete. I've migrated some packages to
the jessie repo and am building some more. Hopefully everything will
be back in working order in a couple of days.
Verified that `apt-get install crossbuild-essential-armhf` now succeeds.
A couple more issues:
- A package (Xenomai) requires `build-essential`, but nothing installed
by `crossbuild-essential-armhf` provides `build-essential:armhf`. That
causes `mk-build-deps -a armhf` to fail. How is this normally addressed
in a Debian package cross-compile scenario?
I'm going to try setting up Wookey's cross-build daemon or use sbuild
directly, so never mind. (I remember finding instances where
`mk-build-deps` appeared to do the wrong thing even while the `dpkg`
tools did the right thing, which has me suspicious of that script anyway.)
- Another project (Machinekit) I updated for cross-building will want
`pkg-config`. Ubuntu supplies a special cross-build-aware version,
`pkg-config-arm-linux-gnueabihf`. I'll pick it up, since I don't see it
in the Emdebian distribution. Is that package something on the Emdebian
Answering my own prematurely-asked question: The `pkg-config` package
contains the `/usr/share/pkg-config-crosswrapper` script, which simply
to the environment.
I maintain a Machinekit + dependency multi-arch/multi-distro package
distribution with a stack of packages including RT kernels, so I have an
idea how much work goes into the Emdebian distribution. Thank you!
Except for this paragraph, my previous email can be ignored. ;)
