Not sure about ia64, but the problem on m68k is about unmet

wouter@auric:~$ wanna-build -b m68k/build-db --info ulogd
  Package             : ulogd
  Version             : 0.98-2
  Builder             : smarenka-thing2
  State               : Dep-Wait
  Section             : net
  Priority            : optional
  Installed-Version   : 0.97-1
  Previous-State      : Building
  State-Change        : 2002 Sep 01 15:32:00
  Depends             : kernel-headers-2.4.18
  Notes               : uncompiled

Note the 'State' and the 'Depends'; they show that the package cannot be
built due to the fact that there are no kernel-headers-2.4.18 available.
Which is correct, since there's no 2.4-kernel for m68k available (at
least not one that reliably boots).

If it's possible to build ulogd with 2.2-headers, you may want to
consider adding a conditional build-dependency; if not, some other steps
may have to be necessary.

Although I'm not in the right group to be able to work with the ia64
wanna-build database, on http://buildd.debian.org/stats/ia64-all.txt I
can see that ulogd on ia64 suffers from the same problem (unmet
build-dependency on kernel-headers-2.4.18, although the reason for that
fact may be different).
