[Pkg-pascal-devel] status of cross-binutils

Hi Wookey,

Recently I got a cross build bug against FPC filed.¹ The reported did
quite some digging himself and apparently a part of the solution is to
(alternatively) depend on binutils-i586-linux-gnu (for i386) and similar
for other archs. However, that package isn't in stretch, so I can't go
that route now. Looking that the tracker package of cross-binutils, it
seems that cross-binutils predates the current building of cross
binutils by the binutils source package itself, correct? Shouldn't
cross-binutils be removed and couldn't/shouldn't binutils also build a
i586 and x86_64 version?

No clue if all this makes sense, but thanks for reading...
