Thanks, cross-compile environments are in my area of
interest, I'll look at scratchbox. Did you try to build
omniorb with it? Major point of the my post was not to
discuss particular cross environments but problems
rather specific to omniorb. The "bootstrap" problem
AFAIU effectively prevents omniorb from being directly
cross compiled no matter which environment do you use
(unless, of course, the envoronment includes ARM
emulator/virtualizer, which is loaded automatically for
ARM binaries) :). Or I'm missing something?

For record, I used standard Debian tools, i.e.:
1. toolchain-source
2. dpkg-cross
