Cross Compiler Packages

Registered by Duncan McGreggor on 2010-03-29

Improve packaging of cross-compilers

Overall goal: try to script creation of cross-compiler packages and allow in archive cross-compilers (and not out of archive + manually built)
- Improve support for -sysroot
- Merge the binary-cross target into binary for e.g. gcc
- Other simplifications of gcc/binutils etc. packaging to allow replacing these
- Provide .dsc + .diff.gz etc. in the -source packages.
