I would like to notify everyone that today Maverick got working cross compiler 
for ARMEL target. Packages are available in "universe" for i386 and amd64 
architectures (if someone wants them on other archs then do a local build).

How to install - simple "apt-get install gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi" will give you 
C compiler. Want C++ or Fortran or Objective-C(++)? They are available too.

Versions are same as native packages - gcc 4.4 by default, gcc 4.5 available 
as option. Runtime libraries are from gcc 4.5 like on native architecture.

So install, test, report bugs:
