yeah, that's the trouble with cross-compiling ... not a lot of documentation
around as it tends to change often
but i'd like `crossdev arm-iwmmxt-linux-gnueabi` to "just work" since we have
all the releases in portage now (binutils-2.16.9x / gcc-4.1.0 / glibc-2.4)

hmm, python should work (or least i fixed it sometime ago, it may have broken
since) ... if it's failing, please file a bug and assign it to

i was able to port Gentoo to SuperH/armeb using just emerge and
cross-compiling a stage1 ... the stage1->stage3+ i did natively :)
