Bug Description

Fails with:
arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc -D_GNU_SOURCE -O2 -Wstrict-prototypes -Wall -I../include -DRESOLVE_HOSTNAMES -DLIBDIR=\"/usr/lib/arm$
emp_ematch.l:2:30: fatal error: emp_ematch.yacc.h: No such file or directory

The build command is:
xdeb --only-explicit -a armel --prefer-apt --apt-source --debug --force-rebuild iproute
using xdeb 0.6.5~crosstoolsppa from https://launchpad.net/~linaro-foundations/+archive/cross-build-tools

The actual build command xdeb issues is:
debuild --no-lintian -eUSER -eCONFIG_SITE=/etc/dpkg-cross/cross-config.armel -eDEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck -eGTEST_INCLUDEDIR=/usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/include -eGTEST_LIBDIR=/usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/lib -ePKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR=/usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/share/pkgconfig:/usr/share/pkgconfig -eDH_VERBOSE=1 -aarmel -b -uc -us -tc

To easily reproduce the build environment in which this bug was discovered follow the HOWTO here:

Set 'buildlist' to just be the one line:
to only build this package and not lots of others too.

Note that this iproute issue is as seen in the version of iproute uploaded here: https://launchpad.net/~linaro-foundations/+archive/cross-alip

The plain cross-build in natty has no cross-support so just builds with gcc instead of <arch>-gcc
