Actually file bugs against any such packages. If they don't run (or
make sense) on m68k (and most likely on anything but i386 in that
case) they are not binary-all. I know that they are architecture
independant since they don't contain binaries, but they just don't
(and probably never will) work on non-i386 archs.
