Bug Description

Debian commit [60fb7e6] in glibc first introduced in "debian/2.25-0experimental3-25-g60fb7e6", has the effect to create a FTBFS situation for "cross-toolchain-base" on Bionic which uses glibc 2.26.

In fact after the above commit, the patch "debian/patches/glibc/ubuntu/no-gdb-python-hooks.diff" found in cross-toolchain-base source code is no longer needed and can be safely remove as it tries to modify a piece of code already in place in glibc introduced by [60fb7e6], preventing the package to build with a hunk FAILED as follow :

After removing the offending QUILT patch, it failed to build due to a missing "Build-Depends:" for dwz in debian/control.

But even after having fix 2 issues that I have notice, it still doesn't build properly.

I'll do my best to look at it deeper when I'll have some cycle. Otherwise, anybody please feel free to look at it as well.

Eric, these issues are fixed in 22ubuntu1, however it still fails to build from source.
