IMO it is a serious issue as using mklibs on mips/mipsel will result in a
non-working system. I'm still rather disappointed (and even somewhat
pissed off) that the mips/mipsel porters have not managed to solve it in
over a year time now. The fact that we can work around it for D-I using
mklibs-copy does not change its severity.
I intended to tag it lenny-ignore last week, but made a mistake with the
bug number. It should now be tagged correctly.
