Many packages necessary for building are surely missing. I don't mind
being tell which ones. :-)

I won't upload packages that are already on master (read: already in
my mirror of hamm/main/binary-alpha). On the other hand, I'll also
build packages only from sources mirrored from master. This keeps the
distribution as a whole simpler, since there will only be one version
of a package in hamm.

It can't, yet. If and when source dependencies are implemented, it will
be simple. Until then, I'll let such packages fail for my script (someone
will build them by hand).

I'd say so, yes, especially if the bug report is worded as a question
to the maintainer.

Ah, yes. The output file contains this line:

	/usr/lib/g++-include/streambuf.h:170: Internal compiler error.

Oh, well. If there were an egcs package for the Alpha, I could use that
instead of the normal gcc package, right?
