This reminds me....
I'm planning on announcing this VERY soon, but I'm re-disabling the
autobuilding of the cross compiler debs in binutils. It just too fricken
long on the archs that I need to fix the most (mainly m68k) and there
appear to be more bugs popping up about the debs than demand for the debs
I guess it's probably time for us to try to figure out how we want to do
this correctly, Matthias.....
