rancid is strange configured
rancid is a tool in non-free; buildd doesn't recompile for every architecture
if the package it's non-free, so to avoid problem (i don't have other archs
than i386) i created in the sources of rancid, a meta package called
rancid-installer, which (like the one for pine) advise ppl to download
newer sources for rancid and recompile them by their own.
The debian/control for rancid looks like this:
this thing seems to have something strange: from when i added rancid-installer
buildd try to compile all the rancid stuff for every arch, but it shouldn't .
Is there something strange in the buildd process or is there something wrong
in my ideas ?
Also to make it compile when you get the source i had to add a command line
of sed to change the architecture section in debian/control .
Do you think it's the right way or can you suggest me better solutions to
