Uh, no, I see:
* Too young, only 1 of 10 days old
* taking my time about glibc
* locales/m68k unsatisfiable Depends: glibc-2.3.1-14
* out of date on m68k: libc6, libc6-dbg, libc6-dev, libc6-pic, libc6-prof, nscd (from 2.3.1-13)

Yeah, there was talk about how the bug counting code isn't too correct, but
I'm sure aj would force glibc in if those were the only two things left.
Also note that this is just from update_excuses; update_output might list
even more problems (I didn't check).
2. That which causes joy or happiness.
