Per Debian criteria, I guess it might be. In terms of how this fix
affected Guile, no, it isn't. In other words, as far as Guile is
concerned, I belive that this patch had no net effect for
architectures other than ia64. And it was upstream a few months ago,
so I think we have at least a little evidence to support this.
