I've pushed a prospective branch (pu/fix-ftbfs-in-stretch) with two commits:

Only checked with the first few architectures (still on limited bandwidth),
but that seems to do the trick. Slightly not happy about having that check
and fallback done for each and every architecture (instead of once and for
all), which could again lead to bits and pieces from both sources mixed
together); but I guess that's a reasonable compromise (no big changes needed
in the code).

I'll let others comment on this bug report plus proposed solution; Didier

(Of course testing needs to happen when there's a version in s-p-u again.)
