I can't seem to find them in the autobuilds. Thanks!

They are built as part of building the distributed stage3 tarballs (so are the stage1 tarballs) but haven't been distributed in a long time. The reasoning behind this is principally, as computers have gotten faster, the saved compile time during install is no longer really significant, and the same exact effect can be had after the completion of the Handbook install by fully rebuilding the system set:
Code:
emerge -e @system
With that simple step added, there's no difference whatsoever in the finished product, and the support burden was thought to be reduced.

If you must have the stage1 or stage2, you can make them yourself with Catalyst (dev-util/catalyst) which is what Gentoo Release Engineering uses to prepare the stages.

Thanks! I'll just use catalyst then.

The real message is you don't need them, but, sure, if you like.

KAMIKAZE_,

Beginners start here.

Build your cross toolchain, cross emerge a few easy packages to get a feel for what works and what doesn't.
Execute some cross compiled packages on the target hardware.
