[MiNT] Sparemint Rebuild Progress

Hey all,

I am more than 50% through the sparemint rebuild process. I am categorizing packages into 4 classes thus far.
1. Minimal base to operate
2. Developer base (or build farm base)
3. Package with no dependencies other than 2
4. Package with library dendencies

Using this I'll be able to make much of the rebuild scripts stupid and only have to include logic to handle the relatively few packages we have that have library dependencies. When base packages are rebuilt they will replace themselves on the build system as the build progresses. When this is complete, the effects of an update to mintlib can be distributed to all packages overnight :) At least we'll have SOME of the convenience of dynamic linking.

Some troubling things I am discovering:
* Many many many packages do not have their provides/requires right. I am proving this by removing most packages from my system and attempting to build and it doesn't sense that a necessary package isn't there to build and the build fails. Often times ncurses is requires and ncurses will be a part of my developer base - however the packages build-requires and other stuff should be setup right. * Several packages have -m68020-60 flags hardcoded. This is never necessary as you can use fdlibm as Keith did for the openssl/openssh on his site, but of course if you do that, those packages will go much more slowly on a machine with an fpu since fdlibm is 'dumb' and can't detect the presence of an fpu and use those functions automatically. * I am having an issue with some subset of packages where it cannot find strip. Another subset of packages gcc can't produce a valid executable during configure. I'll have to figure out what's going on with those. * We have more successful builds (63) than bad ones due to compiler issues (37). Most "core" packages are building without issues. There are some warnings. This is not going to be a big problem.
