recalled a few years back when i needed to bootstrap debian for a new cpu, it's painful and near impossible(cross compiling, perl, cross-dependencies,etc, i eventually gave up), I wish one day debian can have something like this too, it's purely black magic.

There was a session about that at DebConf11:

Seems like the Emdebian folks are working on it.

Right, so Debian are working on adding explicit Bootstrap deps. In fact, I'd argue we (other distros) have some good things to feed back into our process from their experiences. Take that as a round about way of me say kudos to the Debian guys for an awesome job on v7 so far :)
