Bug Description

The CeGCC software available at http://cegcc.sourceforge.net/ is very useful for developing native Pocket PC applications without having to run Microsoft's development software on a Windows Machine. It would be useful to have an ubuntu package available to make installation of this development environment easier.

Upstream, the CeGCC team appear to prefer releasing their packages as i386 (RPM) binaries, as "The sources of CeGCC are also available, but they're big. We believe that those who want to build from source are probably the same people who will want to keep up to date, so they will not mind accessing our SVN source repository"

Given this, it would be especially useful to be able to just apt-get installl cegcc to get everything across easily. At the moment, the easiest option appears to be installing the RPMs using alien (howto here: http://jabasite.ej.am/blog/2007/12/31/installing-cegcc-on-ubuntu/ )
