This is completely insane. If nothing is done without some interest from
the maintainer, having packages ported will be a terrible pain. AMD64
users will have to hurry hundreds of maintainers to make an effort for
an arch they don't use, and it's not like there weren't any lazy

That's why we need a way to have all the archive rebuilt, not just a
part of it. Without that, we won't have all packages built for amd64
before several *years*.

Face it: as is, this port is useless.
