Re: arch lists with 'all' and machine architectures

Hallo Goswin,

I'd say the heuristic is that unless it is any or all it will need one of the
other architectures to properly build the all package because it's already
arch-specific.  That there are certain cases which even require arch-affinity
of packages with just all in the line is known and that will require hinting.
(sparc firmware only buildable on sparc comes to mind.)

I don't think we will hint the case you state, though.  Unless building
breaks on one of those.

Kind regards,
Philipp Kern
