I've just tried building netcfg on s390, but that fails with: dpkg-gencontrol: error: current host architecture 's390' does not appear in package's architecture list (i386 sparc alpha m68k arm armel armeb powerpc mips mipsel hppa ia64 amd64 lpia kfreebsd-i386 kfreebsd-amd64) dh_gencontrol: dpkg-gencontrol returned exit code 255 AFAICT the reason is that the binary netcfg is !s390 (while netcfg-static is arch any). Before the conversion to debhelper v7, we called most dh_command with the '-s' option. If I add an overrides in d/rules for dh_gencontrol *and* dh_builddeb to pass the -s option, netcfg builds correctly again. I wonder why this is needed? Shouldn't this "just work"? Is there a better solution than adding the overrides? Maybe 'dh -s $@', but I'd expect that will cause an error where we copy templates in override_dh_installdebconf... I also wonder if other converted packages could have the same issue. Cheers, FJP
