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.
