Re: Bug#678604: lilypond FTBFS on armhf

The problem is that metafont segfaults on armhf. This looks to be some
odd kind of architecture specific problem in armhf's malloc, which
I've asked for assistance with on debian-arm, but have received
Given that lilypond built successfully in raspbian and arm EABI uses a 1
in the LSB of a code address to represent thumb mode code I wonder if this
is a thumb related glitch.

As such I am trialing building texlive-bin in arm mode (-marm compiler flag). If I can successfully build lilypond with the new texlive-binaries I intend to
make texlive-bin use -marm.

The NMU diff is attatched to this mail (note: please do not upload/commit this
change yet, I want to see if it actually solves the problem first).
