Actually, it can. It is not the packages' fault that a compiler is not available for that platform. Should the compiler ever be ported to a given architecture, if the package did not specify "Architecture: any" in its control file, there would be need for an updated package for no reason other than to update the Architecture line. That's silly, because it would require a recompile on all architecture, for no reason. -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org If you're running Microsoft Windows, either scan your computer on viruses, or stop wasting my bandwith and remove me from your addressbook. *now*.
