    We would benefit very much from having someone who actually maintains a
    suite of cross-compilers for kernel developers.

    Yes, the stuff I put together is very old and at the time crosstool was
    horridly hard to use. Hardly any combinations of anything actually
    worked - what you see there is about 5% of the toolchains I had to
    build. Apparently is has become better.

    That sounds suspiciously like "thou shalt use debian". I was so
    traumatised by dselect ten years ago that I don't think I could afford
    the therapy bills.
