Agreed.  I meant for that.

Yes.  I wish packages of cross toolchain for SuperH also supported by
Debian.  In my Debian SuperH port, almost all packages are installed
on an x86 machine with dpkg-cross.  dpkg-cross is a very nice tool.

All the resources so far are found at
ftp://ftp.m17n.org/pub/super-h/debian/.  Note that they are based on
the older architecture scheme (sh3/sh4/sh3eb/sh4eb), not that proposed
