1) You did not answer my question whether laptop-detect really supports
   sparc. If it does not, we should not install it there (and laptop-detect
   should not be built for sparc).
2) I think the log message for non-laptop arches is redundant.
3) The laptop test in tasksel should be modified to _first_ test whether
   laptop-detect exists or not. As it is now it will barf errors.
