Actually, it really is 'cloog'. I just didn't search Maverick sufficiently.
The basic binary flavour cross compile works OK, but I'm having some
issues with compiling perf as well as some complaints about foreign
arches in deb descriptions, e.g., "dh_gencontrol: dpkg-gencontrol
-Pdebian/linux-image-2.6.35-903-omap4 returned exit code 255".
On the other hand, compiling the binary flavours goes _really_ fast,
which is nice. I'll send out a note once I have it all figured out.
