Hi
Please change dpkg-cross to accept -aarch,too. I still add a space when
using dpkg-buildpackage and forget the space with dpkg-cross after hundreds
of invocations.
Thanks, Jonas

Sorry - dpkg-cross is already scheduled for integration into dpkg-dev
(although this will now happen after Lenny) and this change is not as
simple as it would appear - far from it.

dpkg-cross already includes debconf and user-specific support for not
having to specify -a $ARCH at all. The only situations where -a is
actually needed are where one specific user is preparing -cross packages
for more than one cross architecture at the same time. I think that is
really quite rare and does not warrant changing the option handling in a
package that is already being migrated into dpkg-dev.
