* link to build tools
 
* package repository
 
* etc.
 
 
 
Best approach?:
 
* Create a toolchain (glibc, zlib, binutils, gcc) using ABS and makepkg from within an untouched gentoo (or Debian) chroot.
 
* Compile pacman to a different chroot.
 
* Install the toolchain compiled earlier into this chroot.
 
* Install abs.
 
* Compile all other packages.
 
 
 
Note:
 
To get the toolchain to compile,  edit the PKGBUILDs like this:
 
 
 
  sed -i.old 's/i686/sparc64 i686/' PKGBUILD
 
 
 
and
 
 
 
  sed -i.old 's/depends/#depends/' PKGBUILD; sed -i.old 's/makedepends/#makedepends/' PKGBUILD
