I agree that a qemu chroot enironment it is by far the easiest to setup and use initially.

I'm doing non-intel stuff for years now and have been through a lot of pain with different cross compiling environments and approaches. Native compilation also hurts as it takes ages, even with "beefy" cpus like the recent ARM ones. Using binfmt-misc and a static qemu in a chroot just rocks.

For interested readers, this is a good start: http://wiki.debian.org/EmDebian/CrossDebootstrap#QEMU.2BAC8-debootstrap_approach

Instead of step 6) I'd just run /debootstrap/debootstrap --second-stage

More importantly, this can be adapted so that MakeRelease can build arm packages for linuxmce. (I would suggest this as an exercise, to be able to run the Ubuntu_Helpers_NoHardCode scripts under such an environment.)

Think this should cover it

I should really get this thread back on topic :)

I am using MakeRelease and the Ubuntu_Helpers_NoHardCode scripts to build for the Pi within both a chroot/qemu environment AND a scratchbox cross-compile environment.  The qemu environment is by far and away simpler and easier to setup compared to the cross-compile method.
