Well rught now I'm trying to get dpkg (and it's dependencies) to build on the box.
I haven't really tackled the hard packages yet. Even though I have fooled with util-linux a little.
Part of it depends on arch stuff but it has to do with fdisk and how to layout things on the disk.
For in fdiskbsdlabel.h i386, sparc and arm have the labelsector set to 1 and the offset to 0
But alpha and powerpc have the labelsector set to 0 and have an offset of 64.
This is all through fdiskbsdlabel.h and fdiskbsdlabel.c
