When building cross target I get:

dh_lintian -pgdb-arm-linux-gnueabi 
dh_install -pgdb-arm-linux-gnueabi --sourcedir=/home/zumbi/buildcross/trunk/armel/gdb-7.1-1/debian/tmp 
cp: cannot stat `debian/tmp/usr/bin/gdb': No such file or directory
dh_install: cp -a debian/tmp/usr/bin/gdb debian/gdb-arm-linux-gnueabi//usr/bin/ returned exit code 1
make: *** [binary-install/gdb-arm-linux-gnueabi] Error 2
dpkg-buildpackage: error: fakeroot debian/rules binary gave error exit status 2

Let me know if you need more info or if you need me to figure out what's going on.

Kind regards,

It has been a while since the bug was opened. A fix it is proposed,
thanks to Marcin Juszkiewicz, he proposes to fix this issue with:

 # The default changelog is the top level one, which is useless.

But Loïc suggest not to use cat | sed | sed, instead, use some form of:

sed 's+/gdb+/$(TP)gdb+g; \
         s+usr/share/$(TP)gdb+usr/share/gdb+g' debian/gdb.install \

Dan, do you think it is posible to fix this bug? TIA.
