FYI... with the poor state of cross-compilation support for Debian 
packages, it would be pretty much impossible to officially use 
cross-compilation for Nokia tablets. In practice, scratchbox provides a 
native-looking build environment.

I agree however that an automated test (e.g. for libosso) would be 
better than a hard-wired --enable-maemo.

IMHO, that's irrelevant. The compiler can optimize it this.

I am not a big fan of using ALL_CAPS_NAMES for stuff that is not a 
macro, though.
