It's perhaps a silly question:
Isn't the "Architecture" field in debian/control the right place for this?
If a package is "Architecture: i386" no autobilder will try to compile it
on another platform.


BTW: Someone of the people who fear legal risks should remove the apache
     packages from the archives - distributing a package built from
     modified sources violates the copyright...
