I dont want to argue very much - I think both ways do have advantages.
I am coming the distribution way and i am used to something
like rpm --rebuild although i am going the debian way.

There is stuff like autobuilder, autoconf, dependencies etc which
give a major headache on cross-compiling. For all the embedded archs
i do think there is a way of having a "workstation" like machine
available for compiling native and having a distribution.
