Right, he asked me on IRC, Wouter asked me on IRC, but that was on friday
night when my IRC client ran at work... seems we live in different
timezones. I started some builds on monday, but as I said I grabbed the
wrong source. When that was finished another build on q650 had already been
started, but the timeout wasn't adjusted properly. It does not help blaming
other people now, but it would help for all packages if they would produce
some output if they are still working on something, especially if that part
takes a long time.

Which Martin? Anyhow, it seems I spoke too soon, the problem that I saw
already in my useless build with the old sarge version has become worse.

There were several segfaults, and now the build fails due to a segfault:
Info: creating .pdf file...
Info: creating temporary .html file...
Info: creating .txt file...
./buildone.sh: line 292:  2643 Segmentation fault      /usr/bin/w3m -dump

Error: build of txt failed with error code 139
Warning: The following formats failed to build: txt
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 2

Segmentation fault

This looks a bit like
#318806: w3m: Segfaults on ia64 every time

I wonder why the build completed earlier this week when I built the sarge
version. I had segfaults in the same places, but the build continued. Has
something been changed in the Makefiles?
