Thank you very much for the note. So I know where the problem on Alpha
lies. I'm still investigating things on the other architectures.
Now I wonder, if woody would become stable what will happen to packages that
build fine on some architectures and on others not. Won't they make it
into stable? (Although this is not a very urgent issue ;-)
