I did check back with the tex-k development list, as well as doing
my own experiments on gabrielli.d.o, and both sources I can confirm
that memory dumps are architecture independent and can be used
across systems.

Am I right that my next steps should be:
* make all texlive arch:all packages, as well as tex-common M-A: foreign
* switch texlive-bin to dh9 and install libs into /u/l/$arch/
* mark texlive-bin and all the libs also M-A: foreign
  (this step I am not sure about - where are the various M-A field values

Thanks a lot and all the best
