Yes, i meant that ;)

I'm gonna try to cross-compile debian packages (including, but not
limited to GNU). On failures, I'll contact you and/or upstreams/package
maintainers to figure out how package could be correctly compiled
without horrible hacks (which i sometimes needed to do on my first

Are you aiming at making your libc POSIX ? This may help me to decide
when to bother you with such issues, when to bother upstreams, or when
to just hack things myself to get it working.

I have another question, about the GNU software distributed with DJGPP.
Are you using the upstream vanilla sources, or are you including patches
to make them fitting more within DOS ?
