Cross compiling is definitly no option for debian as the dependencies
etc are all made from "ldd binary" which has to fail for cross-compiling.
I guess this also happens to rpm packages so cross-compiling to really
get a correct distribution is definitly no option.
The larger the packages are the harder it is to get them cross-compiled
correctly as they run nifty little check programs from configure which
cant work. I guess you had similar problems as all rpms are
"noarch" which is definitly - ummm - interesting.
I definitly go for native builds - Once you have a working stable
base you can set up debian autobuilders which will do nearly
everything for you except signing and uploading the package into
the main repository.

Why is it called "common sense" when nobody seems to have any?
