I'd also like a copy of the output from the builds. Most likely, I have
patched some of the problems already and/or can knock out the patches
quickly due to familiarity with the common problems encountered.
Glad to hear someone did this on a more automatic level, though. That's
definitely a step in the right direction :)
Oh, also, most likely the libs dir is a majority of what's dying on you.
I'm currently working on this dir. Most of the problems it's most likely
having are related to the libc5-compat stuff that most rules/control files
want to generate...
