"embuilddeps" is a simple build dependency checker for Emdebian Crush.
Native build dependencies are checked using the debian/control file in
the source package being built and installed with "apt-get".
Cross build dependencies are checked using a debian/xcontrol file,
added to the package for Emdebian Crush. Packages that need to exist as
cross packages need to be specified in the "Build-Depends" line of the
debian/xcontrol file. Packages that only need to exist as native
packages, e.g. build tools like autoconf or CDBS, can only be specified
Currently, "embuilddeps" still uses "apt-cross" for cross build
dependencies but a replacement method is being developed.
