No change, linux-2.6 still building, but I think this is the last
flavour (mvme16x, and it’s at net/tipc already so it shouldn’t take

I’ll binNMU that as I did the others, then upload to unreleased
with the others.

We’re at 134 now, including python2.6.

Planning to do that this weekend.

Built git, so I think I should have all of gettext’s dependencies,
sans Java™, which I’ll disable and upload to unreleased, as per
discussion with the maintainer. However, I rebuild libxml2 and
glib2.0 (its dependencies) too because they’re quite old. I found
out I need python2.5 in addition to python2.6 for python-all-dev,
so building that too.
I’ve set DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck again, because they were taking
up too much time in some cases. The results for python2.6 don’t look
100% good, but neither do they on other architectures, and honestly,
I don’t believe people look at them or use them really. Also, some of
the official buildds (e.g. hppa) have it disabled too. I think I’ll
keep it enabled when building gcc on Ingo’s Amigas, just to have some
kind of logs and something for people reviewing our patches to go
over, but concentrate on building building building, especially as
gcc-defaults in experimental wants gcc-4.5, the linux-2.6 maintainers
are starting with the next version, etc. and, despite people not wanting
to upload to unstable m68k fixes due to the freeze, I think right now
is the time where unstable is the most stable, so it’s perfect for what
I’m doing, if I don’t mind using unreleased (which I don’t).
I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
