Fortunately I only want to cross-compile the kernel (many times). I used 
dpkg-cross but very little since make-kpkg has its own infrastructure for 
cross-compilation and supports the powerpc64 :)

I didn't use toolchain-source because it had gcc 3.3 and I wanted to use 3.4. 
If I understand correctly, it contains the source code to gcc and binutils so 
that a number of source packages do not have to include it right? I was 
planing to use a single source package to build all the cross-compilers. This 
way the source code would be all in one place. I admit that the package will 
take a LONG time to compile.
