This is getting really offtopic...

That'd be fine otherwise, but one of my machines is a powerpc and the rest
of them are i386 (Yes I know, this is a good example of self-inflicted pain
:). If the Debian build system supports cross-compiling then that would
work, otherwise I'd have to build on two architectures anyway. Well, perhaps
that's still easier than compiling on every machine I use.
