Hmm that's not easy indeed
I guess you could extend the cross-compilation logic in
binutils/gcc-4.5/eglibc/linux etc. to allow outputting the binary
packages with "Source: armel-cross-toolchain-base (x.y-z)" instead of
You can probably achieve that by creating a control file and a
changelog file which have the right information and passing -c + -l to
Another way, probably less complex, is to extract and repack the .debs
with the proper control information.
Note that because the version of the binaries and the version of your
source differ, your source field needs to be "Source: armel-cross
(yourversion goes here)"
