Did you every try to auto-build that? Did you ever check on how many arches
this package exists? I find only i386 and m68k, m68k has an outdated
version. The last time I tried to build that it failed with some configuring
error while installing some package (inn?). Yeah, I did not file a bug, if
you are interested in getting this fixed, I can send you the build-log.
