In reality in 2.2 arm target there are unmet dependencies for flex and 
quilt. Flex is available in scratchbox, quilt not. I have downloaded 
quilt sources from http://packages.debian.org/unstable/source/quilt
It needs other stuff when building. With -d the build breaks on missing 
hevea. Luckily make install in quilt build directory installs quilt 
executable. Then x-server builds fine and produce debs. What is strange 
that /usr/bin/Xomap on device with latest IT2006 firmware has ~600kb but 
my executable in debian/xserver-xomap/usr/bin/Xomap has 1.2MB. When setting
export DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=thumb
before build the result has ~900kb.
Tried strip just to be sure and size did not change. What other options 
are needed to reproduce device size?
