I'm building the OE images on the ppc64 host (Apple xServe G5):
Debian lenny (current), 64-bit kernel, 32-bit userspace.
To successfully build packages for arm, I had to manually override
BUILD_ARCH to be ppc (misdetected as ppc64) and disable binary locale
generation (qemu segfaulted).
I'm going to try to build OE image in fully 64 bit environment, but that
is not going to happen soon.
With best wishes
