So the package must be arch: any. And it must be installed for all arches

Root is not a problem (even you could get root on an m68k box). But what
does this package do? What do I need to fix for m68k? Only adjust the
devices to be created? Couldn't you have taken the information for the other
arches from the potato boot-floppies? And how are we supposed to hack it
in, its _very_ i386 centric ATM... any style guidelines or maybe an example?
Otherwise every porter does it as he likes it... _if_ somebody does it...

Oh, you're not the maintainer, aj?
