retrieve, build and install libraries for cross-compiling

apt-cross is intended to make it easier to locate, download, install and update your cross-compiling libraries, directly from the Debian archives.

By default, apt-cross uses /etc/apt/sources.list to find the current Debian package file for the architecture specified (or dpkg-cross default) and in the suite specified (default is unstable). Alternatively, you can specify a different mirror. Downloaded files can be passed directly to dpkg-cross using the -b or -i commands to apt-cross.

Includes a helper script to support the transition to multiarch.
