[Yum] Odd question

I don't see any reason why yum-arch would give you problems on debian
(you might be able to run it on windows). Yum can be installed from
tarball [1] with the standard ./configure; make; make install. You may
need to play around to install under /usr/local or whatever.

Alternatively, you could run yum-arch on a different machine and just
copy the resulting headers directory to the debian box. 

An even better option might be to consider mirroring from a site that is
already yumified, such as mirror.dulug.duke.edu or downloads.fedora.us.
This will remove the need to run yum-arch at all.
