> By the way, is maemo closer to arm or armel in Debian?

It's armel (i.e. using EABI instead of the old OABI, maemo
switched before Debian did), with Glibc v2.5 compiled using
Gcc 3.4.4 (which is older than what's used in Debian).

Because of the version difference, dynamically linked binaries
from Debian won't work, the source packages need to be re-build.

The sources may also need changes because we have different
versions of some libraries (and older kernel headers package
which may matter for really low level stuff) and the base
system uses Busybox instead of GNU utils.  Many Debian
packages build without changes though.
