I'm building it from inside the Chinook SDK, using the ARMEL target.
You have to do these things:

1) unpack the sources (tar xfvz.......)

2) mv spim spim-7.3 (since dh_make needs this directory name)

3) cd spim-7.3

4) dk_make -e youremail at yourisp.com

5) dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

now try ti install the package.... it should build on your SDK too...

N.B: please note that you should not try to build xspim, because you
don't have all the libs you need.

I get this:

[sbox-CHINOOK_ARMEL: ~/spim-7.3/spim-7.3] > dpkg-checkbuilddeps
: Using Scratchbox tools to satisfy builddeps
[sbox-CHINOOK_ARMEL: ~/spim-7.3/spim-7.3] >

please let me know, thanks :)
