Bug#648345: FTBFS on kfreebsd-amd64

Package: ppp
Version: 2.4.5-5
Severity: important
Tags: patch
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd


ppp fails to build on kfreebsd-amd64 with the following error:

  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  Support for GNU/kFreeBSD has not been included
  in this distribution.  Sorry.

Note that although ppp is in principle a portable program, and it has had
support for FreeBSD in the past, this is no longer the case.  Starting
with FreeBSD 8.0, line discipline support was removed, and as a result
ppp is no longer portable to FreeBSD or GNU/kFreeBSD.

Thus with 8.0 release, upstream removed ppp from its source tree, and adjusted
their port [1] so that it's only buildable on pre-8.0 versions of FreeBSD.
Instead they opted to use their own version of ppp, which is now available in
Debian as "freebsd-ppp" package.

Taking this situation into account, please consider marking "ppp" as
Linux-specific by setting its Architecture to linux-any.
