I have to admit that so far I've resorted to building natively on the
ARM hardware I run things on. You need a target Python version in your
path, and cross-compiling Python has so far been a stumbling block for me.
The dreamplug is a Kirkwood-based ARMv5, right? With a reasonably fast
disk, I can build on similar hardware in ~2 hours, iirc. Make sure you
have enough RAM, the build takes > 128 megs.
