 jslaunch cannot be built on m68k, nor any other system that does not
 support 'inb' or 'ioperm' system calls due to lack of the IO ports
 'feature'. So Architecture should not be any, at least m68k and powerpc
 should be excluded.

 Also I am not sure weather, even if it builds, it makes sense on other
 architectures other than i386.

 On what other architectures is there a joystick system alike that of
 i386 where jslaunch would work?

 It does build on: i386, alpha, arm
 It fails build on: m68k, powerpc, sparc
 Couldn't get a hand on a hurd-i386 machine.

 Should I simply exclude those which I know that don't work and wait for
 porters to check weather it builds/works? or only include those which I
 know that work?

 If not told otherwise I will write:
 Architecture: i386, alpha, arm, hurd-i386
 And wait for bug reports.
