Bug#807554: src:nghttp2: Please remove jemalloc as a build-dependency on m68k

Source: nghttp2
Version: 1.5.0-1
Severity: important
User: debian-68k@lists.debian.org
Usertags: m68k


nghttp2 is currently BD-Uninstallable on m68k as it build-depends on
jemalloc which currently FTBFS on this architecture [1].

Thus, please add m68k to the list of architectures (which currently
contains hurd-i386 only) which do *not* build-depend on jemalloc.

And, currently, jemalloc even FTBFS on many other architectures due
to testsuite failures [2] which could make nghttp2 BD-Uninstallable
on even more architectures and transitively make even packages like
curl which has a ton of reverse build-dependencies BD-Uninstallable.

According to the nghttp2 developers, jemalloc is recommended only
but not required, so it might be a good idea to temporarily drop
jemalloc as a build-dependency until all problems in jemalloc
are sorted out.
