Building haikuos on ubuntu or debian

I'm following this guide on ubuntu natty and debian sid

checkout haiku source code
checkot build tools and install jam
svn checkout haiku/buildtools
cd haiku/buildtools/jam 
sudo ./jam0 install 
checkout haiku
svn checkout haiku/haiku
i'm interested only in gcc4 builds
so this is the 32 bit version
./configure --build-cross-tools-gcc4 x86 ../buildtools/
jam haiku-image
qemu generated/haiku.image
and if you like the 64bit version

./configure  --build-cross-tools-gcc4 x86-64 ../buildtools/
jam haiku-image
qemu generated/haiku.image

If you want to build a GCC2-GCC4 hybrid, then you can follow this step by step procedure:

Although this tutorial was written for Ubuntu 9.10, it works the same for later versions.

I never build hybrid because i always build my stuff for gcc4 (qt,arora)

In my opinion hybrid should die and all to be migrated to gcc4/llvm setup
Also 64 bit version is required if you want a modern OS
