It's definitely true.

Well, I've just done it. Or I think so. I've got gcc, g++, make,
dh_builddeb, dh_gencontrol, dh_install, dh_makeshlibs, dh_shlibdeps,
dpkg-shlibdeps, dpkg-deb, dpkg-buildpackage, dpkg-gencontrol, pkg-config,
and others... but my problem is that almost all the howtos depend on
deb-make and dh_make, and I don't have these functions...

I was very excited running a simple C program compiled directly over my
osso-xterm, just typing: gcc example.c

I suppose that I'll need to do things in the old-fashioned way (like
installing packages without apt)...

Given that my PC is Debian, I suppose that it would be easier for me the use
of Scratchbox, but I still think I could do it only with the little 770...
