Bug#888395: charliecloud: FTBFS on non-Linux

Source: charliecloud
Version: 0.2.3~git20171120.1a5609e-2
Severity: important
Justification: fails to build from source
User: debian-hurd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: hurd

Hi, Lucas.

The build of charliecloud for hurd-i386 (admittedly not a release
architecture) failed:

  ch-run.c:20:10: fatal error: sys/mount.h: No such file or directory

The Hurd is unusual in not having traditional mount and umount system
calls *at all* (instead letting administrators associate mount points
with "translators" [1]).  However, this program also contains plenty
of outright Linuxisms, so I would expect kFreeBSD builds to fail too.

As such, please formally declare this package's architecture to be
linux-any so that non-Linux autobuilders don't bother trying to cover
