Bug Description

Binary package hint: gcc-4.4

Hi there

I tested gcc-4.4-arm-linux-gnueabi 4.4.4-6ubuntu5~ppa2 and it has no $triplet-gcc symlink.

In the past, emdebian style cross-compiler packages had -gcc symlinks.

I think there are two needs for the cross-packages:
a) take this gcc-ish package and give me a fully functional cross-compiler from it (runtime libs, -gcc and stuff)
b) take all these gcc-4.x source packages from Ubuntu and make them cross-compiler packages has to have the same set in cross-compilers as Ubuntu has

a) is basically "standalone"
b) is rather "use the same approach as Ubuntu"
b), we'd need a gcc-defaults package to be consistent

It's not urgent to support the b) case, but we need some package providing $triplet-gcc for the cross-compiler packages to be useful.

Let's keep this bug to track a), as to restore prior functionality (emdebian-style packages used to provide the symlink along the cross-binary).

gcc-4.4 4.4.4-7ubuntu1 and gcc-4.5 4.5.0-8ubuntu1 releases fixed this issue. Can we close the bug?

Sure, I think we have another bug for the -defaults stuff.
