Nice. I backported libgmp10 and used it to build a simple C hello,
world under lucid x86_64.
The armel build seems to be a bit confused. It depends on gcc-4.4 but
build-essentials is correctly pulling in 4.6. There's lots of 'gcc:
not found' messages in the log.
The PowerPC build fails while building the SPU variant of libstdc++:
"""checking for the value of EOF... configure: error: computing EOF failed
config.status: executing libtool commands
config.status: executing default-1 commands
make: *** [configure-target-libstdc++-v3] Error 1"""
Perhaps SPU needs to be disabled or some of the target libraries disabled?
Should the package version be gcc-linaro_4.6.2011.09-0ubuntu1 or
gcc-linaro_4.6.2011.09-0~linaro1? 0ubuntu1 means that it doesn't
exist in Debian (correct) but does in Ubuntu (incorrect).
