Re: Bug#776346: libpcap: build udeb for use in debian-installer

kfreebsd not being a release architecture any more, means any future
FTBFS shouldn't stall testing migrations, at least.

If udeb-blocks  are ever an issue, I imagine KiBi could allow an
exception for a udeb that is kfreebsd-any.

You didn't even mention that to debian-bsd@.  You only complained
about it in an unrelated bug report that had not been Cc'd to
kfreebsd porters at all;  and grumbled about it on Twitter.

Now you mention it again without actually knowing if the buildds
are fixed or not.  They did get updated for jessie and have been
converted to virtio.  If they still prove to be slow or awkward,
would you please write a separate mail to debian-bsd@ and not
again complain about it in an unrelated bug report.

It came as a surprise to me too that Mike is pursuing this, but I am
glad he is willing to do the work, especially if you say that you are
not.  After 7+ months in the BTS with patch, a porter NMU delayed for
10 more days is IMHO quite justified at this point.
