Bug Description

Binary package hint: gcc-4.5

I want to make backports of armel cross compiler for lucid and maverick releases. To do that I need to have gcc-4.5-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 gcc-4.5-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.

but this still builds a gcc-4.5-base, which overwrites the one from the distribution?

No, it prepares everything needed for gcc-4.5-base package, but does not create such one. I can provide build log.
