A few comments.

1. Slide 7: maybe elaborate a bit on the meaning of "It does not track which 
   package installs what", i.e. you can't uninstall (or install) a package 
   form the target.

2. Slide 14 header: maybe "External toolchains: HOWTO"

3. Slide 19: the sysroot copying stage seems to be missing

4. Slide 22: the 'echo' command is missing '-e'?

5. Slides 23-26: headers should be "... (x/5)"

6. Slide 27: old style CMAKETARGETS

By the way, is there a link to the TeX (or DocBook?) source of this 
presentation.  I'd really like to learn a few Beamer tricks, like the source 
box in slides 17, 18.
