Bug Description

Binary package hint: binutils

I want to make backports of armel cross compiler for lucid and maverick releases. To do that I need to have binutils-source package available so PPA will be possible to use. But I can not provide other packages because I do not want to provide backports of toolchain components (especially libraries).

Attached patch adds SOURCE_ONLY variable which disables building of any packages other then binutils-source.

For backports I would also have to lower build-dependencies but thats not part of this bug and can be done in other way.

new version which uses BACKPORT instead of SOURCE_ONLY and also renames -source package to binutils-VER-source.

debian/control part is not to be merged.
