Ok, consider it dropped ...

I'll have to make one. The problem is that dpkg built very slow (2.1.72, lots
of sed'ing of makefiles and config files as far as I could see, and I've
got more than the usual load of SCSI timeouts during that build). It seems to
compile all sources, resulting in a lot of object files in debian/build/...
When it comes to creating the dpkg binary from all that intermediate object
code, it complains about missing the archlist.h file (which is in the source
tree, but apparently not in the debian/build/ intermediate tree). 

As soon as I've plugged that disk into the Falcon again I'll retry. The Mac is
just too slow ...
