You are probably safe. The LCD is exported over the framebuffer and distrobutions like OE use the same userland tools. I don't know what the setgpio does but it can't be that much as there are standard kernel (sys) interfaces to configure,get and set gpio's. If you are not going to build from sources why not simply use a proper OE based rootfs binary image?

I was a bit tired, setgpio was a typo, i mean devmem2 and other gumstix related tools. It seems to be OK. And why debian ? I had serious problems with OE images, and i'm using debian on my desktop more than 10 years ago, so it's more comfortable for me.

What you should to then is to package dev2mem. As you probably know debian usually does not cross compile so you either will need to use the overo itself to compile or use a chroot/qemu installation. From my experience it takes quite some time to really understand the debian packaging stuff. It;s easy from a users perspective but harder from a developers one. Also I am not aware of a debian release that makes use of the cortex, perhaps You can get in touch with the guys mentioned here http://www.debian.org/ports/arm/ 

I believe that a lot of the discussion(s) evolve around letting others build the system or using it yourself. I would also be interested in the experience from people using the automated builder http://narcissus.angstrom-distribution.org/
