compiled, or just the headers?

I've had a look, and there's lots of good info there, just not very
applicable to the newer releases. As I said, I did get the single-tree
method to work, using symlinks more or less as describe in the cross-gcc
For anyone else who wants to build from the separate -src.tar.gz files,
is actually a fairly generic makefile. Even on a non-debian system, one
could run 'debian/rules unpack' to set up the tree, then just configure,
make, make install.
