To fix 55835, change NUM_PROCS = @NUM_PROCS@ to NUM_PROCS = 1 in
libungif-4.1.0/Makefile.am. That should work. Otherwise, rip out
the whole -j option to make.

It's not their fault. It's either kaffe's fault (in overly smart
build machinery) or libc6's fault (for failing to support a
feature that it should on m68k.)

If you're going to change Architecture, change it to
Architecture: i386 m68k powerpc sparc arm hurd-i386.
(Assuming you fix 55835.) Don't needlessly penalize systems just because
Alpha doesn't build.

It seems to work fine with IDE masqurading as SCSI.
