Bug Description

Binary package hint: gcc-4.4

During ARM-CrossCompilers session at UDS-M we discussed some changes to be made in Ubuntu toolchain packages. One of them was updating gcc-4.4 to use debhelper 7 (instead of compat level 5).

Attached patch does migration.

Tested with building native (amd64) toolchain and cross toolchain (amd64->armel). Debdiff does not found any differences in resulting packages.

hmm, I'm not aware of this one.

How was this patch tested?
Are the packages built identical to the ones without the patch?
Does the patch work for a cross compiler?
Does it work with the -spu packages on powerpc?

The patch is incomplete in that it doesn't show you the files not installed in any binary package anymore. Please update the patch.

IMO using --autodest is the wrong thing to do.

Just for note: we can get rid of dh_movefiles but it has to be done in a way which will work with debhelper 5 from Dapper.

Just a note to myself as I am cleaning my notes:

- dh_movefiles could be replaced by generated *.install files - so only one call to dh_install would be needed
- some *.install files can be provided as-is (gcc-4.4-source), some will need to be manipulated during build (HOST/TARGET names for example)
